Last post I asked for help identifying my beautiful mystery bowl. It is a beautiful shade of blue, with a wide flat optic rim. The bowl is round, with no protrusions or flat edges, which ruled out several patterns including Fostoria Fairfax. Here is the original post asking for help: Help! Mystery Glass Alert!

It pays to have so many glass lovers that read this or get updates from our Facebook page! Shelly F knew this right away as the 14 Panel bowl from Cambridge. Sure enough, that's the right one!
What I didn't know was the Cambridge line number. The Miami Valley Study Group, a group of devoted and extraordinary Cambridge experts publish a website that includes a huge database of pieces with photographs. Plus, the photo albums are easy to search. I found this topaz bowl listed as line 40 which looks identical to mine.

Whenever I visit this site I come away in awe at their expertise. There are several bowls that look about the same to me, at least based on the thumbnail pictures reproduced from Cambridge catalogs. But this group is able to pinpoint which of the three or four choices it is. Wow.
