Vintage Pyrex and other ceramics

Yellow and brown flowers were popular back in the 60s and 70s

I started collecting some vintage Pyrex ceramics from the US and England as I like the flower motiffs as well as the bright colours of these wares. The yellow Pyrex mixing bowl with the yellow daisies is my favourite as the vibrant colour makes me happy. Though Pyrex wares are still around today, gone are its rich and beautiful colours. They come mostly in transparent glass and honestly, they can't get more boring than that. What happened to the gorgeous colours of pinks, yellows, greens and more ?
