Whew. Back to glass from a quick foray into china. I like glass and I bet you do too. This pattern is called Moonstone and it is a later version of Hocking Glass’ Hobnail pattern.
Hocking made their Hobnail pattern during the depression (1934 to 1936) in pink, clear, clear with red trim and some pieces in ruby. Moonstone came later, from 1942 to 1946, mostly in clear glass with white opalescent glass on the edges and tips of the hobnails. There are a few pieces listed in green, which I’ve not seen in person but which look great in pictures.
Moonstone came in a small dinnerware set, with plates, cups, goblets, creamer and sugar. It’s interesting that it does not have some of the basic serving pieces we see in other patterns; for example the large serving bowl is pretty small, more decorative than the bowls you would use to serve a huge mound of mashed potatoes.
On the flip side, you can see there is a Moonstone vase, a cigarette box (which makes a super holder for Post It (TM) notes or cards, a puff box, toothpick holder, relish tray. It is almost as if Hocking was torn between making decorative glass and dinnerware glass and compromised.
Moonstone is a pretty pattern. You can check my listings here in my store Cat Lady Kate’s Elegant and Depression Glass, or check eBay affiliate link for a larger selection from other sellers.
