LuRay Cream Soups - Rare & Hard to Find!

My hunt for LuRay dinnerware never ends...which is okay with me because I think it is half of the fun. Some of the pieces are harder to find than others. The cream soup is one of them. It has taken me about ten years to complete the above set of four, as of today.
My latest acquistion is the cream soup in persian cream. The hunt is over for this little gem! Oh how I've waited. I may just have to use it to celebrate the occasion.

Now my next question for myself is... do I want to try and go for a set of 8????

We'll see what I can find over the next decade!

If you're looking for more good reading on LuRay, I have posted several times about this dinnerware before on these posts below:

LuRay Pastels - Great Conversation Pieces
LuRay Pastels: Lovely Display Dishes
and
LuRay Pastels: Classic Dinnerware with Popular Appeal

I also have a few pieces left for sale on my website,
Bella Rosa Antiques.

Happy collecting and as always,

They're gorgeous! Why is that particular piece so hard to find? Were they just not as frequently purchased so there just aren't as many floating around?

Um ... I had no idea these were anything special until someone freaked when I told them I had several, and had broken the handle on one of them while using it for ice cream!
