Found this neat little frosted glass vase at Salvation Army this morning. It's Cambridge glass and about 5" high and 6" across with an ovoid shape. A design of leaves,vines, and berries encircle the piece and is their pattern #23 called 'Everglades". The collar has a chip in it on the inside edge but it's not too intrusive. There is what appears to be an acid etched name in the middle of the bottom but it is so faint that it's illegible. -Mike-
NOTE: I received a reply from National Cambridge Collectors, Inc. :
Good Evening Mike,
Yes, your vase is from the Everglade line and is the No. 23 5 inch vase. Your vase began life as a crystal or clear glass vase and then was acid treated to produce what Cambridge called "Pearl Mist". 14 pieces, all from the Everglade line, appeared under this heading in the 1940 Cambridge catalog. Dating would be limited to the very late 1930's to very early 1940's and perhaps even much shorter than that. Just not much info available on this treatment.
