Pink Miss America Depression Glass Tumbler 10 oz. Flat Base
Miss America is a depression glass pattern produced from 1935-1938 by Hocking Glass. This fairly extensive pattern is highly collectible, particularly in pink. The tumblers and goblets are some of the more elusive pieces of this extensive pattern. This is a 10 oz tumbler that stands 4 1/2 inches tall. The base is 1/4 inch thick and there are 4 mould lines (seams) in the body of the tumbler. The base is flat and there is a moulded rim on the base of the glass. The tumblers have been reproduced and all of the above are characteristics that distinguish the old originals from new reproductions. Gene Florence describes the differences between the old and new tumblers in the Miss America pattern in Collector's Encyclopedia of Depression Glass 15th Ed. Florence writes,"New Miss America tumblers have 1/2 inch of glass in the bottom, have a smooth edge on the bottom of the glass with no mould rim, and show only two distinct mould marks on the sides of the glass. Old tumblers have only 1/4 inch of glass in the bottom, have a distinct mould line rimming the bottom of the tumbler, and have four distinct mould marks up the sides of the tumbler." This tumbler passes muster as the real thing! I have 4 of these glasses and the price stated is for one tumbler. All are in perfect condition and are free of chips or cracks.
