Mysteries of Corning Ware - Bistro/Cafe Pattern on P-43

I don't really have a whole lot to say about this mysterious pattern.  It seems to only have been available on the P-43-B and no other pieces.  The official name has not been verified, but "Bistro" and "Cafe" are a couple of the names that people often use when referring to it.  I have even seen it called "French Coffee Shop". 

One thing to note, however, is the flat topped lugs. 

This dates the piece to after 1996, which was the point when Corning Glass Works flattened the lugs of the P-43, as is evident for later patterns like Lyrics, Fruit Basket, Fresh Cut, Friendship and Oceanview.

Where is your Corning Ware??
