  1. New or old?

    Iridescence is one of the signs of a modern marble. I don't know if it is Asian or Mexican. But surely modern.
  2. New or old?

    Hi. Welcome. The 2nd looks definitely new to me. I'm leaning new on the clear-based one also. It looks like Vacor de Mexico to me. The reason I leave the door open for doubt here is that I do not recognize the color combination.
  3. No, not Jabo classics Cool things from past threads that you don't always remember how to get to but you think of from time to time and newbies might have fun with! I LOVE this song!
  4. Still no sun to speak of. But I'm not letting that stop me. I'll try to get better pictures of these later ... after I find out what they're called.
  5. :) Here's a thread just for showing off Jabos. Names and dates are cool. And so is just showing them. Edited to add: Jabos and any marbles made with the help of Dave McCullough after 1990.
  6. How Is The Weather Where You Live Today?

    dreary here Was hoping to take some marble pictures but the sun never came out.
  7. Easter bunny laid a glass egg

    Glass is good! That's a fun one. Do you have an Easter basket?
  8. Random Non-Marble Eye Candy ( :

    ohmigosh, Dylan ... I don't want to give you a big head ... but you're a cutie!
  9. Our color of the month thread seems to be put to bed, so here's a new idea. I'll choose the first color and the next person posts a marble with that color ... and then chooses a new color (or color combination) for the next poster ... and so on. Next color: blue
  10. Color challenge thread

    Hey Paul ... you didn't pick a new combo!
  11. Anybody know what this might be?

    I think this will turn out to be Vacor.
  12. And one more i cant ID.

    I don't recognize this. But since I think your other one is likely to be Vacor, that's how I'm leaning here also.
  13. I remember that shade of green as one of the colors that people were glad Jabo was using, to help differentiate it from an older marble.
  14. Can anybody ID this Marble?

    We love Veiligglas! And that marble is a keeper no matter what. Exceptional.
  15. Can anybody ID this Marble?

    Almost an inch? Oh man, that's beautiful. My first thought was Alley, but I don't know if Alley did transparent swirls that large. So right now I'm leaning to Veiligglas. @winnie .... Winnie, what do you think?
  16. I never got to play Hungry Hungry Hippos! I think I need to put that on my Christmas list.
  17. Mostly Pix - Peltier

    Some auction pix from the files. Sorry, wasn't keeping track of the sources yet when I saved most of these first ones. Note 1: the "click to enlarge" option isn't working right since the last forum upgrade. I need to edit this. Note2: There are many other pix in the links here, Compilation: Original Packaging and Links: Peltier 1992 bag: 2002 bag: This bag says, "Elect Cinamon Commisioner". (click to enlarge) What might the ages on these be? Some are Marble King? (click to enlarge) Vintage comics, in reproduction box: (click to enlarge) Another reproduction box: And a couple more reproduction boxes. I think the marbles are Marble King. And I think these would be originals: (click to enlarge)
  18. How Is The Weather Where You Live Today?

    The outside thermometer read 39 this morning as I headed out to the mailbox down the street and I let out an involuntary "ooooeeeee nice!" lol ... I'm easily pleased.
  19. Marble Jokes

    Oh oh oh ..... remember this one? hehe A new employee is hired at the Tickle Me Elmo factory. The personnel manager explains her duties, and tells her to report to work promptly at 8:00 AM. The next day at 8:45 AM, there's a knock at the personnel manager's door. The assembly line foreman comes in and starts ranting about this new employee. He says she's incredibly slow, and the whole line is backing up. The foreman takes the personnel manager down to the factory floor to show him the problem. Sure enough, Elmos are backed up all over the place. At the end of the line is the new employee. She has a roll of the material used for the Elmos and a big bag of marbles. They both watch as she cuts a little piece of fabric, wraps it around two marbles, and starts sewing the little package between Elmo's legs. The personnel manager starts laughing hysterically. After several minutes, he pulls himself together, walks over to the woman, and says, "I'm sorry, I guess you misunderstood me yesterday. Your job is to give Elmo two test tickles."
  20. Marble Jokes

    I wish you hadn't said "good" marble jokes. But I'll post this one anyway. Why was the birthday cake as hard as a rock? Because it was a marble cake.
