This set of two Miss America Pink Depression Glass Sherbet Plates by Hocking are lovely on their own or add elegance as an underplate to the matching sherbets. The pretty Diamond Pattern of Miss America is unmistakable. One of the most popular Depression Glass patterns, its rows of hobnail diamonds and rays in the bottom of the plate give it plenty of angles for the light to reflect and bounce. These sherbet plates have five rows of diamonds around the underside of the 1-inch rim, with rays in a circular pattern in the center. The color is deeper than some of the other Miss America, but the variation of color in this inexpensive glass is normal.
Each plate measures just under 5-3/4 inches in diameter and has a depth close to 1/4-inch.
Production of this unmarked pattern, from 1935 to 1938, spanned the 1937 merger that changed Hocking to Anchor Hocking Glass.
One point on one of the plates has been chipped off, as seen in the photos. The other plate has no chips. As is common in vintage glassware, there are minimal expected minor surface scratches that do not mar the shine. Any of the expected flaws characteristic of Depression Era Glass, such as bubbles, mold seam roughness, or other irregularities, are negligible. There is no other damage.
