  1. Thank you for showing the picture! Steph, here's the marble backlit, than darkened to show structure. Could be Master. https://goo.gl/photos/JQrui8E7VnKQdkMK8
  2. They are machine made. With a bright backlight you can see nice straight seams. They do not have a glow. Can you make the image show? I had no luck with the two image codes I know.
  3. Found at a yard sale today. $6 https://goo.gl/photos/W5q5QwoHZYYVAgT27
  4. Bulgarian

    The Google service is new to me. I think the link will work now. I don't think it was "shared" before.
  5. Bulgarian

    I got mine Monday. I made no special requests. All my frit/cyclones are colorless base. The mix was about 50/50. I was hoping for enough tornado/cyclones to fill a solitaire board and I got just enough. Many of the handgathereds were "muddy" toned, but, I got enough cool ones to make me happy. Trying again in album form. Three types of frit, My favorite 9s, and The rest: https://goo.gl/photos/ArFHvzFNnTjEKTDe7
  6. In the Wild

    Also, found a cool oxblood paperweight for $2.50.
  7. In the Wild

    I found a few goodies in a small jar of marbles in a second hand shop recently. Mostly Akro, and a cool first off cane handmade.
  8. Akro Blue Oxblood Dog

    The dog itself is a common "toy" given to children in the 1930s-1940s. The added color striping is rare. I've only had one of hundreds with added stripes (a tiger). That may well have been added by an Akro employee. The usual coloring was just a splotch or two of glass.
  9. The Games People Play...ed

    missing two marbles. Not in picture: a wood top to spin in the middle. I think you get points for the marbles you displace.
  10. Fluorescent Marbles

    Cats eyes - the orange have glowing base glass and the other two have glowing vanes. Master Marble - banana cat type : yellow turns orange in blacklight.
  11. Post Your Purple Marbles

    Vitros and a modern oriental.
  12. Fluorescent Moonie

    First one I've ever seen, 5/8" with the moonie orange glow when backlit and brite green fluorescent. Anybody else have one? Found it in a fun little mixed lot off eBay. Lots of common corks, lovely swirls, couple slags, 1940s-1960s mix. Here are a few highlights and the fluor/moonie (plain one in picture): The plain green cork at the top is on a pale blue base (doesn't show well on my dark blue background).
  13. And, of course, the water filter balls (IE Atlanta Olympics/Tennessee dredge).
  14. Klondike And Brandy

    Just a guess, since brandy is clear, brandies are probably handmade clearies (that's also my guess based on the prices listed). Klondike = gold, so they are probably a lutz or mica (price is higher, so, I lean towards a lutz of some type).
