    and Master bananesque 'blobs' remain as ugly as sin
  2. Pinkish base w/brownish swirl?

    The ribbon tips look more typically Alley than Cairo to me (not familiar enough with Jabos to comment), but that fold could be Cairo (or Heaton).
  3. Pinkish base w/brownish swirl?

    The butt-cracks?
  4. Pinkish base w/brownish swirl?

    Could well be Alley - I've got a green swirl with a very similar structure that came with a few other St Mary's, but I don't know whether it's distinctive enough to rule out others.

    We use stationery as a catch all for office supplies.
  6. I said I wouldn't buy any more with no ID, lol...

    Looks good for a Ravenswood - I wouldn't worry about the name, they're not Ravenswood names, just collectors grouping.
  7. Flame ID -- Alley?

    It looks good for Alley to me
  8. Vacor

    Handy to be aware of
  9. All red blackie

    Agree with Steph (although I've got one )
  10. Veiligglas Wirepull's

    That's stunning Winnie.
  11. Champ or jabo?

    Agreed on Jabo
  12. 3 for ID please!

    Agreed on one and three and clueless on two!
  13. Master Marbles?

    Odd/small size is a good pointer to Akro
  14. Assorted marbles from Europe

    Good idea Steph. Those patches intrigue me too - I don't know of any English production and I've not seen anything quite like them.
  15. Help ID PLEASE

    Looks Champion to me
  16. Assorted marbles from Europe

    Most of their production was around 20mm and mainly Cat's (but yes they did produce some sparklers (I've got a bag of Cat's from the glassworks)). Most Sparklers appear to have been of French origin (there's a French Marble thread buried in General chat showing a box of sparklers clearly labelled Made in France), but I can't uncover anything about French factories.
  17. Has anyone got any experience with any of the wooden systems? Cubaro looks the most advanced but seems to be a)difficult to obtain at the moment b ) incredibly expensive Kaden looks reasonable, but it looks like it uses larger marbles Varis looks reasonably priced, but a bit too colourful Any experience / thoughts / alternatives?
  18. Assorted marbles from Europe

    Thank you. I like the Veiligglas. The sparklers are wonderful - but not Veiligglas as I understand it - I'd love to know where those and the patches were made.
  19. Random Conversation Thread

    Buried in the garden for authenticity - you've got to dig up dug marbles.
  20. French collector

    Welcome and nice marbles. I'd love to know something about the French marble factories if you know anything about where Sparklers were produced. Richard
  21. Champ?

    Looks good for a Champ to me
  22. Cats eye ID

    Tricky - some Marble King can be very pale, as can some Bogard...
  23. Milky oxbloods?

    You're not suggesting bringing out a hammer?
