Pyrex Livingware 2 cups: Floral Spray, Colonial Mist, Solitary.
The Livingware 2 product line debuted in 1983 with a Pyrex cup that was unique in style and composition. It is certainly opal Pyrex, but the glass is more opaque and whiter than usual, possibly even a brighter white than Corelle itself. For certain patterns, this cup style was dropped in 1986 in favour of Suprema mugs. It was also included in the 1986 version of Holly Days. Opal Pyrex ceased production soon afterwards. Dates pertain to this cup style in general; the date range of each individual pattern varies.
Extra-white Livingware 2 cups are marked with the company name "Corning", but they are made of Pyrex and have a "No Stovetop or Broiler" warning embossed on the bottom. Like regular opal Pyrex, this extra-white version is suitable for the microwave.
The backstamp reads "CORNING ... Corning NY USA ... Microwave Safe ... No Stovetop or Broiler". It is unclear whether any cups of this type are marked with the Pyrex brand name.
Livingware 2 did not include cream & sugar sets.
