Circa: 1974-1977
Manufacturer: Pyrex, Corning Glass

Here is some information I found online by the Talbot Hamilton Group (http://www.corellecorner.com/home.html)

about Centura: Available from late 1962 to 1977, Centura Tableware offered outstanding break resistance combined with the appearance of quality porcelain. It carried a three year warranty against chips, cracks, breaks and crazing, a promise that no other dinnerware brand could make. Centura's innovative glazed glass-ceramic formula is quite different from Corning Ware's composition. Corning Ware cookware has extraordinary resistance to heat shock, but it is not immune to breakage from impacts. Centura's heat-resistance is comparable to that of Pyrex; it may be used in the oven, but not on the stovetop.

Centura cannot be used in the microwave, and although that was not important when it was developed, by the mid 1970s this limitation would make Centura seem impractical. When Corelle combined the benefits of good break-resistance, lighter weight and lower cost, plus microwave capabilities, its popularity eclipsed that of Centura as well as every other brand of everyday dinnerware.

Centura Tableware's discontinuance was announced July 1977, following the launch of Corelle's Expressions Livingware line that spring.

This particular pattern is called Summerhill. It debuted in 1970. It is a vivid yellow & orange floral, also designed by Cynthia Gerow. This pattern was discontinued in 1976 0r 1977. This second version of the line had the floral pattern on the side of the bowls. This coupe shape as it is known was all the rage in the 1950s-1970s.

Each bowl is marked on the bottom: Centura by Corning, Corning, NY USA. Baking only. No Microwave.

So, whip up some bread pudding or a crumble and serve a tasty retro midcentury treat. Price is for the set. They are all in excellent vintage condition.
