Searching for the elusive Hocking Miss America Pink Depression Glass Dinner Plates? Look no further! The pretty Diamond Pattern of Miss America is unmistakable. One of the most popular Depression Glass patterns, its rows of hobnail diamonds combined with the circular rays in the bottom of the plate give it plenty of angles for the light to reflect and bounce. There are seven rows of diamonds in the 1-1/4 inch rim of the plate.
Each plate measures 10-1/8 inches in diameter.
Production of this unmarked pattern, from 1935 to 1938, spanned the 1937 merger that changed Hocking to Anchor Hocking Glass.
Each plate has a small amount of nearly imperceptible, non-sharp, inner rim roughness. This was commonly caused by stacking and is not highly visible. Each plate has a 3-1/2 inch crease in the center which occurred in the manufacturing process. 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.
