These three Hocking Block Optic Green Depression Glass Cups were made by Hocking Glass between 1929 and 1933.
Named for its block design, this pattern has horizontal rings and vertical pillars molded into the glass forming three rows of blocks. According to Gene Florence's Collectors Encyclopedia of Depression Glass, there were several styles of cups made for this pattern. Two of these cups have the pointed handle and one has the plain, rounded handle.
The cup with the rounded handle measures 2-1/8 inches tall, 3-3/4 inches diameter across the top with another inch for the handle, with a 1-3/4 inch diameter foot. The cups with the pointed handle are slightly smaller at 2-1/8 inches tall, 3-3/8 inches in diameter across the top with another inch for the handle, and a 1-3/4 inch foot.
There are no identifying marks.
The two cups with the pointed handles each have 1/2 inch long section of inner rim roughness, located in the same place on each. One of these also has a tiny edge chip, commonly known as a fleabite. There is no damage to the remaining cup with the rounded handle.
There are other styles of cups with saucers and a mug in this pattern also available from Maggie Belle's Memories.
