Broken glass in cabinet door

I'm not sure if I'm posting in the right forum, but I need to replace a pane of glass in a cabinet door, but I can't find the same kind of glass. I guess I could get 2 more of the same, but I kind of like the one that's in the opposite door. Temporarily I just got a pane of glass at a big box store and spray painted with frosted glass. Any idea where I could find one to match. I'm attaching a picture. Thanks in advance!
Also, if this isn't the right forum, can you point me in the right direction?

OK, I moved it to "Glass and Mirrors".

Check with stained glass stores. They have all sorts of decorative glass. I would have them cut it to size for you. Sometimes heavily patterned glass can be annoyingly difficult to cut.

I would take a door off and take it to a commercial city glass shop. That would be your best bet. Call around and see who has the most samples. Not all glass companies are equal.

I think once you walk into a professional glass shop with many samples, you will be impressed and might look at some other options.

This an old style patterned glass that may be difficult to find. It was called Bottom Bottle Glass and came in clear and a few tints. Your only chance might be an old glass shop that might still have some. Stain glass studios might also be a good source. If it only 2 cabinet doors it be cost effective to replace them with an available pattern.
