It states that casserole lids and the cream & sugar set are not made of glass-ceramic.  The illustration of the 4 cup percolator is inaccurate, it implies that the spout is chrome like that of the 9 cup.  In reality, a 4 cup percolator is the same pot as a 6 cup beverage maker, but with a different lid and a basket and pump assembly inside.

A C-112 Patio Platter is not shown; it is round with a very narrow rim.  The oval platter pictured is either a C-610 or C-611.  The small coffee pot is shown with a percolator lid, so that makes it a 4 cup percolator.  With a different lid, this pot is also a 6 cup beverage maker, or teapot.

There are three sizes in straight-sided bowls, with a choice of White, Platinum or Gold.  With a large saucer or under-plate, a regular 20 oz bowl becomes a gravy server set.

At this time, matching Corning Ware had a round Buffet Server shape.  It is not clear why 10 inch skillet lids should be available in Laurel, Lynnwood and Summerhill, when 10 inch skillets apparently are not offered in these patterns.  This size also fits a 4 Qt Dutch oven, which does not seem to come in these patterns either.

Along with two square Corning Ware casseroles, a C-811 oval platter (M), and a C-150 Porringer (S) are also made of Corning Ware rather than Centura.  These two items re-appeared later in Corning Ware's "Little Dishes" product line, re-named a Main Plate and a Grab-It.  Porringers/Grab-Its did not come with lids at this time.
