Here is Pink Depression Glass ruffled console bowl in the lesser known Lexington pattern by Anchor Hocking. The light plays beautifully off of this fluted and ruffled bowl. It has a rounded rayed design in the bottom that resembles a many-petaled flower. The bowl is heavy and has a slightly deeper color than much of pink depression glass, almost shading toward purple.
The pattern, Lexington, is shown in Hazel Marie Weatherman's Colored Glassware of the Depression Era 2, listed under her "Unknowns" toward the back. These were patterns for which she had been unable to identify the manufacturer. The Glass Candlestick Book by Tom Felt and Elaine and Rich Stoer identify the matching candleholder as by Anchor Hocking.
This large glass bowl measures 11-1/2 inches in diameter and 3-3/4 deep. It would work well as a serving bowl or to hold cut flowers. There is no mark.
Made by Anchor Hocking circa the 1930s, there are several tiny bubbles typical in Depression glass. A couple of these at the surface popped in the manufacture. There is a 1/4 inch place near the outside top edge that can be felt and looks like a scrape with tiny 1/16 inch horizontal lines. There is also a curved 3/4 inch line in the bottom that looks like a crack, but cannot be felt from the inside or outside, and may have been a heat fracture in the manufacturing process. All of these faults are small and do not detract at all from the overall beauty and functionality of this uncommon bowl. The condition is reflected in the price.
