Add this Pink Depression Glass Oval Platter by Hocking to your Miss America collection! One of the most popular Depression Glass patterns, its rows of hobnail diamonds on the flat rim and rays in the bottom of the platter give it plenty of angles for the light to reflect and bounce.
Each platter measures 12-inches by 9-1/4 inches and only about 1/2-inch deep.
Production of this unmarked pattern, from 1935 to 1938, spanned the 1937 merger that changed Hocking to Anchor Hocking Glass.
Unfortunately, each has two or more points chipped off of the edge. One has two points chipped, and some of the other points are smooth and rounded on this platter, as though exposed to extreme heat. This may have occurred in production. Another platter has four points chipped, and one has five points chipped. Most of these chips are very small, and the worst are shown in the photos. Any of the expected flaws characteristic of Depression Era Glass, such as bubbles, mold seam roughness, or other irregularities, are negligible. There are minor surface scratches on all three. The condition is reflected in the price, giving you an opportunity to add to your collection at a bargain.
