Corelle Profile: Morning Blue (1982)

Morning Blue became the newest addition to the Livingware product line in 1982.  Although it is officially stated that this pattern is discontinued, it is still in production and can be purchased at factory outlet stores.

Livingware patterns were normally accompanied by Pyrex Compatibles, but Tabletop Ware and ovenware & nesting bowls were never manufactured in Morning Blue.  Although opal Pyrex products in other Corelle patterns were still marketed in the early 1980s, the Pyrex Compatibles brand name was no longer in use, and Tabletop Ware was nearing the end of its lifespan too.

Others:

Licensed glassware was made for Morning Blue.  Indiana Glass produced a line of "Drinkware For Corelle", and their glasses can be recognized by the "double bulge" near the bottom.  Libbey, or its subsidiary Crisa, produced glassware with a "single bulge" at the base and a narrow top. 

Another glassware style, by an unidentified maker, came in two sizes and has a slight hour-glass shape, narrowest in the middle and flared top and bottom.  The base is flat and thin.  Judging by its appearance, the design seems to be authentic.

Other licensed Coordinates include placemats from Conimar Corporation and glass counter-savers from Vance Industries.  Plastic thermal mugs also exist, marked "Corning Coordinates 1990".  Cutlery with decorated plastic handles was also offered in Morning Blue.
