  1. Well, no new marbles lately but I did run across this cool little glass egg at the antique store last weekend. The lady that runs the store was quick to point out that it "has a pontil". So as I examined it, sure 'nuff, it does have a pontil mark. I am not sure if it is very old (Probably not) but it is cool. On the small end, there is a small "wrap" where the maker didn't completely smooth it out. So, it is a neat egg and I like the colors.
  2. Easter bunny laid a glass egg

    Yes, I am sure I have one somewhere. I might have to get that basket and set it out to see if the Easter bunny will leave me another glass egg or 2.

  20. Y'all ever see a Jabo like this?

    WOW.... that is some really good insight into the Jabo company. How did the 99% pure silver work out? What runs contained silver or gold? Sounds very interesting!!!

    Very nice! Well, here we go, par for the course if I am involved..... I think I know what aventurine is.. (maybe)..... but what is "lutz"..?? Is aventurine "caused" while making green glass? Seems those go hand-in-hand. Mike... (aka, confused as usual)
