Hocking 1930s Vintage Deco White Red 1.5 Qt Mixing Bowl
This medium Art Deco mixing bowl was made in the 1930's by Hocking Glass. It is a bright white opaque glass they called Vitrock. It has the appearance of a very shiny milk glass with some swirls of very slight color variation similar to what is typical of slag glass but much more muted. These probably won't show up in the photos so I just wanted to give you an idea of some of the subtleties of the surface appearance.
This bowl holds one and a half quarts (6 cups). It measures 9.5" wide at rim and 4.25" high. Melon ribbed sides terminate in a scalloped border at top and foot. The flared and rolled rim makes a great handle... easy to hold when carrying or mixing. It has a fired on red stripe which shows no color loss. There are some "straw marks" that occurred during the manufacturing (crease lines in the surface caused by the glass being poured into a cold mold) typical of much depression era glassware. There are 4 or 5 small (pin head sized) digs or flea bites on top of rolled rim, probably from storage. It's in very good vintage condition otherwise... no cracks, no chips, no repairs. Purchased from an estate sale along with other pieces of Vitrock that we're offering this week.
