Offered for your consideration is this pretty Old Colony Pink Depression Glass Covered Compote. This Hocking Glass pattern, Old Colony, was also nicknamed "Lace Edge," or "Open Lace," because of the glass loops forming "lace" around the rims. The alternating small and large openings around the rim are the only decoration needed on this pretty compote, but Hocking added details like the rayed pedestal foot and matching rays in the domed cover with a ribbed knob finial on top. This type of bowl was called both a compote and a comport interchangeably. This is such a romantic and pretty piece for serving small candies, dips, or fruits.
The comport measures 7-inches in diameter and 3-1/2 inches tall without the cover. It is just over 5-1/2 inches tall with the cover on. The foot is 3-1/2 inches in diameter and the cover is 4-7/8 inches in diameter,
Made by Hocking Glass between 1935 and 1938, there is no mark.
There are a couple of 1/4-inch surface scratches on the cover, and the common bit of roughness on the underside of the lid where it fits down inside the bowl. Other than the expected flaws characteristic of Depression Era Glass, such as bubbles, mold seam roughness, or other irregularities, there is no damage.
