Corelle Profile: Colonial Mist (1983)
The Livingware 2 product line was launched in 1983, and Colonial Mist was the most popular among the four new patterns. Bowls, saucers and oval platters are decorated with a single blue band on the rim. The common feature among Livingware 2 patterns was the inclusion of a new Pyrex cup style with a unique extra-white formulation.
Colonial Mist was discontinued between 1987 & 1992, but an exact ending date is not known. It was the last Corelle pattern to be offered with matching Pyrex nesting bowls & ovenware, which arrived in late 1983. By this time, Pyrex Compatibles Tabletop Ware had ceased production, so items like butter dishes and salt & pepper sets were never manufactured in Colonial Mist.

Although opal Pyrex items were discontinued in 1986, this exact design re-appeared later as "White Lace" on clear Pyrex rimmed nesting bowls. Three-piece and four-piece bowl sets were introduced mid-1988. Within the Corelle Coordinates line, Libbey glassware in White Lace appeared even later, in 1994.

Licensed Corelle Coordinates glassware was made in White Lace years after Colonial Mist Corelle was discontinued. Libbey, or its subsidiary Crisa, produced this glassware with a "single bulge" at the base and a narrow top.
Other licensed Coordinates include glass counter-savers from Vance Industries. It seems that there are no unofficial imitations of Colonial Mist from other manufacturers.
