Imagine setting your table with these beautiful Miss America Pink Depression Glass Cups and Saucers by Hocking! One of the most popular Depression Glass patterns, the pretty Diamond Pattern of Miss America is unmistakable. Its rows of hobnail diamonds and rays in the bottom of each piece give it plenty of angles for the light to reflect and bounce. Each cup has six alternating rows of diamonds that stop about 1/2-inch below the rim. The saucer has six rows of diamonds around the rim forming the characteristic zigzag edge. The color varies between the cups and saucers offered here, as seen in the last photo, but the variation of color in Miss America is normal.
Each cup is 3-3/4 inches in diameter and just under 2-inches tall. The handle stands out an inch from the cup. The matching saucer measures 5-3/4 inches in diameter, and the cup ring on each is 2-inches in diameter, which fits the cup perfectly and helps prevent it from sliding.
Production of this unmarked pattern, from 1935 to 1938, spanned the 1937 merger that changed Hocking to Anchor Hocking Glass.
One cup has a manufacturing defect in the handle that makes it look as though it was formed from two separate pieces. This is not a crack. (See photo) As is common in vintage glassware, there are expected minor surface scratches, but other than the expected flaws characteristic of Depression Era Glass, such as bubbles, straw marks or creases, or other irregularities, there is no damage to any of these sets.
