Crystal Ball Newsletters

The Crystal Ball Newsletter

Beginning with Issue No. 1 (May 1973), National Cambridge Collectors published a newsletter related to Cambridge glass and activities of the organization. In the early days of collecting, this newsletter was one of the primary sources of information on Cambridge glass. Today's collector has at his/her disposal many publications on both Cambridge and other companies. However, you will find that the older articles preserved herein contain a lot of extremely useful information not found anywhere else.

In most issues, there is a detailed article relating to some phase of Cambridge glass, such as a study of a particular pattern, or historical information about the company. In addition, there are advertisements (classified or partial to full-page) from dealers and individuals with glass for sale or pieces wanted.

Electronic Crystal Ball

All available issues the Crystal Ball have been produced or reproduced in electronic (PDF) format. You will need the Adobe Reader® to view it. If you don't have the Adobe Reader (which is supplied with nearly all new computers) you can obtain it for free from the Adobe web site.

A word of WARNING - the Electronic Crystal Ball is often quite a large file, and can take quite a long time to load on a slow internet connection. The large issues over 15 MB are marked (***) to allow those with slow connections to avoid them if desired.
