Hocking Hobnail - (1929-1933) (Pink and Crystal) - (1960s, 1970s) (WMG)-(1941-1946) (Moonstone or White Opalescent, Crystal / White Opalescent,Green Opalescent, Cranberry Flashed Opalescent, and Other Experimental Colors )

As is true with many patterns, many companies had a version of a Hobnail pattern.  To further confuse the issue the name "Hobnail "was used by numerous companies. Hocking made a Hobnail pattern from the mid- 1930s through the 80s.  Because of the different time periods and marketing strategies involved the pattern has been separated into three different sections.


Hocking Hobnail - (1929-1933) (Pink and Crystal) Hocking first created their "Hobnail " pattern in the 1930s.  At the time crystal and pink were the only colors made. Pieces of the Hocking's early hobnail have been found with red enameled bands and feet. The largest plate available is a 8 1/2" luncheon plate. This pretty luncheon set had both flat and footed tumblers, two pitchers, a decanter, bowls, and cups and saucers


Moonstone -(1941-1948) (Crystal , White opalescent or Moonstone, Green Opalescent, Cranberry Flashed Opalescent, and Other Experimental Colors) Moonstone was one of Hocking's most loved early to mid 40s patterns. This pattern is often confused with Fenton's French Opalescent Hobnail but the shape of the pieces and the hobs are vastly different. Fenton's hobs are more pointed, while the Moonstone hobs are smoother to the touch and are more rounded. There were 22 pieces of Moonstone in the regular line. These can all be found in crystal with white opalescence. For some reason this pattern captured the imagination of many Hocking workers. Many experimental pieces of this pattern can be found. Some of them are unusual colors that were made from the existing 22 molds, while others were made from entirely new molds. All the experimental pieces do have the basic characteristics of Moonstone. The hobs are the same and many of the pieces have a rounded rayed pattern embossed in their base. It seems strange that Hocking made new molds and never mass produced so many of the pieces. Perhaps most of the experimental pieces were created close to the end of Moonstone's production period. Hocking did make a Hobnail white opalescent cologne bottle for Wrisley. It goes well with the Moonstone pattern, but it is not listed with Moonstone because the mold and rights for the bottle were owned by Wrisley.


Hobnal (1970s) (WMG) In the 1970s Hocking reissued their Hobnail pattern in White Milk Glass. The Fenton Art Glass Company was having great success with their White Milk Glass Hobnail line and the white milk glass color was in demand.  Hocking used the early Hobnail molds to produce a luncheon set in the popular white glass color.  While many pieces used the same molds, some molds were redesigned and have vertical rows of ribs between the hobs. The Hobnail pattern was a success and vases and a cookie jar were added to the line.
