These Miss America Pink Depression Glass Salad Plates were made by Hocking Glass. The pretty Diamond Pattern of Miss America is unmistakable. One of the most popular Depression Glass patterns, its rows of hobnail diamonds around the rim and rays in the center of the plate give it plenty of angles for the light to reflect and bounce.
Production of this beloved pattern, from 1935 to 1938, spanned the 1937 merger that changed Hocking to Anchor Hocking Glass.
Each beautiful glass luncheon plate measures 8-1/2 inches in diameter. Like all of the Miss America pattern, they are not marked.
Two are without damage, and a third has a negligible amount of inner rim roughness. These will be the first sold. The other six each have one or two points chipped off, which is very common for this pattern. I have shown the worst of these tiny chips in the photos. Some of the points are smooth and rounded on two of the plates, as though exposed to extreme heat. This may have occurred in production. Any of the expected flaws characteristic of Depression Era Glass, such as bubbles, mold seam roughness, or other irregularities, are negligible.
Priced separately for your convenience, the three best plates will be sold first. The six with point damage will be discounted 50% with purchase.
