March 2016 Quarterly Meeting

The March 2016 quarterly meeting of National Cambridge Collectors, Inc. and the annual benefit auction is completed. The unofficial auction prices have been added to the 2016 auction photo album from information collected during the auction. The prices will be double checked for accuracy when the official prices are published in the Crystal Ball newsletter.

The “Bring and Brag” display following the quarter meeting contained the usual assortment of unusual examples of Cambridge Glass. Photos of the Cambridge items have been added to our research photo albums. See earlier messages describing how to search for recent additions to our photo albums.
