  1. Need info on hand made

    Steph. I think it was the "opaque" description of a Clambroth marble that got me on the wrong path. It's amazing how a few minutes on this Forum can make a toy marble into an eBay Item! Thanks, again. Nancy
  2. I don't buy hand made marbles and know little about them. But once in awhile, you buy a jar, and they sneak in --- I've read the books on Clambroth and Gooseberry but neither seems to fit. Please advise. Thanks, Nancy
  3. Are they Cat's Eyes? Who made them??

    Thanks so much Steph - I was a long way from guessing that one. I'm doing good but my marbles haven't gotten much attention for awhile and it shows. I've got a few other questions for you if I ever get time. Thanks, again for your help. Nancy
  4. These measure just under 5/8" and there were 10 or 15 in with some old clay, a bunch of hand mades and some cat's eyes. Thanks, Nancy.

  6. Large And Extra Large - But Pretty

    I have some Mexican marbles, but nothing of that size. I'll dig them out and check for these colors and the dappled skin. Thanks for pointing me to possibilities. Nancy
  7. I picked these out of the bunch I just got at an auction. Two are 1" and the other two are 1 1/2". The surface is what I would call Orange Skin. I haven't a clue unless they are foreign or artist-made. Any ideas from the Connection? Nancy
  8. Found A Keeper -

    Thanks for the comments. I doubt that I'll be around long enough to find the rest of that cereal box but I do love the hunt. Ric: It's very possible I was playing marbles that same year - Mickey and I are the same age! Then again, I think I was more into Hop-Scotch! Nancy
  9. Found A Keeper -

    Sorting some 1935 Mickey Mouse cut-outs from Post Toasties Cereal boxes and found myself a keeper.
  10. Peltier (Gropper) Canaries

    Steph: American Machine-Made Marbles describes Canaries as one-color translucent Peltier marbles - "The National Milkie is similar to the Akro Agate Moonie, and the Canary is similar but has a slight greenish tint." A yellowish tint would make more sense to me but they got that info someplace - ?? Nancy

    You mean this guy? The hat goes one way and the tongue the other... Nancy
  12. Need Help With Id

    One end is clear, the other end just fades away. No oxblood - the colors are translucent.
  13. Need Help With Id

    I've been trying to get better pics but the cutline doesn't want to appear for me. I have 3 of these marbles, the same size, color and pattern. The first picture is the 3 of them and the other pic shows the ribbon. Nancy
  14. Need Help With Id

    Thanks, everyone. I thought the "ribbon" looked possibly Peltier but it was part of a purchase that was all Akro so I started in that direction. I guess the color is new to me, also. I'll look some more in a new venue - Ha! Nancy
  15. Need Help With Id

    It's a good-looking marble but I don't know if it's quite a corkscrew so I don't know where to go from there. Reddish brown and bubbly clear. Measures 15/16". Any ideas would be appreciated. Nancy
