I have been trolling about local MaxSold auctions for awhile but had never bought anything. A set of 6 goblets and the pitcher came up and caught my eye. I normally don’t buy Depression glass but…..they ware attractive and several bids later, they were mine. I only had a 20 minute drive to pick them up. Pretty seamless process – kudos MaxSold. Makes it easy to spend money!
Turns out the pieces were made by Hocking Glass of Lancaster, Ohio, between 1930-1934 (according to a Warman’s Depression Glass Field Guide).
While there have been a few reproductions the original pieces were made in crystal, green, pink and yellow.
The pattern is called Cameo but is also known, for obvious reasons, as ‘Ballerina’ and ‘Dancing Girl’.
