Here is the Miss America Pink Depression Glass Cereal Bowl, which doubles as the Butter Bottom, by Hocking. One of the most popular Depression Glass patterns, Miss America's rows of hobnail diamonds and circular rays in the bottom of the bowl give it plenty of angles for the light to reflect and bounce.
Manufacturers of depression era glass often used the same mold for multiple purposes. In keeping with that practice, Hocking issued the cereal bowl as the same piece as the butter bottom. Purchased as part of a large collection, don't be fooled by the quantity available. The cereal bowl is becoming difficult to find.
Each bowl measures 6-1/4 inches in diameter and about 1-3/8 inches deep.
Miss America was made by Hocking Glass for a short period from 1935 to 1938. There is no mark.
I find no flaws in five of the bowls offered. Four others each have a small amount (1/2-inch or less) of inner rim roughness. A tenth bowl has a factory flaw of an extra rim of glass in the center bottom, similar to the cup ring on a saucer. This one also has two extra beads of glass on the inside. This one is shown on a dark background for easier viewing. The last of the eleven offered has a very small nick, almost like a popped bubble, in the seam on the underside of the foot. All have some sticker residue. Other than the expected flaws characteristic of Depression Era Glass, such as bubbles, straw marks, or other irregularities, there is no other damage.
