In my opinion, Pyrex Family Flair doesn’t get the attention it deserves.  Produced for only a short time in the late 50s, the Family Flair series consisted of plates, cups, saucers, creamers, sugar bowls, as well as coordinating bowls.  
Family Flair bowls come in two different sizes: an oblong shape perfect for cereal and a smaller, more circular shape.  The bowls were produced in pale yellow, pink, and robin’s egg blue; however, every now and then non-standard colors surface.  Check out the pictures above for color comparisons between the standard colors and a few unusual color variations.
(Clockwise from top: Unusual turquoise (top) vs. standard blue (bottom); standard pale yellow (left) vs. unusual butterscotch (right); pink (top & bottom) vs. unusual red (middle))   

This lovely 474 just made the long and perilous journey from Canada to California via UPS.  I won’t lie and say I wasn’t worried the entire time it was in transit, but it was definitely worth the wait.  It is referred to as the 1962 Constellation casserole (promotional) in the Rogove book, but to me it is a Pyrex dream come true!
