Here is the versatile Miss America Pink Depression Glass Oval Serving Bowl by Hocking. These serving bowls, like most of the serving pieces, are among the pieces that are becoming more difficult to find. One of the most popular Depression Glass patterns, Miss America's rows of hobnail diamonds on the rim and rays in the bottom of the bowl give it plenty of angles for the light to reflect and bounce.
Each oval bowl measures 10-inches long by 8-inches wide by 1-3/4 inches deep.
Production of this unmarked pattern, from 1935 to 1938, spanned the 1937 merger that changed Hocking to Anchor Hocking Glass.
One bowl is slightly darker than the other, but the variation of color in this inexpensive glass is normal. Other than the expected flaws characteristic of Depression Era Glass, such as bubbles, mold seam roughness, or other irregularities, there is no damage. One bowl has some sticker residue in the bottom which will be removed.
