Depression glass identification help

Your Pink saucer is either Block Optic by Hocking (1929-33)
or Colonial Block by Hazel Atlas (early 1930's). Neither book that I have shows the saucer well enough to tell the difference. Maybe you can look those patterns up online and compare with yours....

So many folks did a lace-edge pattern - Hocking did "Old Colony", also known as Lace-Edge or Open-Lace, but the plates all had a "rayed" center. I'm thinking yours is an elegant maker, perhaps Westmoreland or Duncan.
