 Steph yes that was the original lawn chair where the metal came from for the lawn chair marbles. I was there and did some of the hacksaw work. I should have took what was left of the lawn chair. More hindsight.

Some Jabos. I don't know the name which run(s).  

Edit: Mike Warnelis said the New Decade run, from 2010.

The new Moon Dogs are pretty.  Got 'em in the mail today.  Forgot to check the mail until after dark.  And even in the dim light the lutz popped out at me.

But the battery ran out on my camera and I don't know where my charger is!

I didn't get any good external silver swirls in a whole case, so I had to buy a couple of special ones separate from my case. Bummer, but that's ok.   The silver swirls with lutz swirls are truly rare I guess.  I was able to obtain 2 examples with the silver bits on the inside of the marble (not confettis) and one of them also has a nice internal lutz swirl.  That being said, my favorites are some of those simpler transparent ones from this run.  I love the lutz swirls and hate the confettis, but still want examples of all the different confetti combinations.  Internal lutz swirls are still so cool...and extremely rare in this run.

Well, I wanted to get outside and get some sunlight pix  -- I know people like "natural" -- but I'm dragging my feet, and I do like the bright colors from a flash photo. 

Voila!   DAS F.A.B.B. Coastal   .... I have a date of Sept. 6, 2017 .... but I made the mistake of looking online and I'm seeing different dates :dunno:

The first Joker run of May 2008 produced a lot of marbles that I love, but one of my absolute faves is the one that I dubbed the Killer Miller, both for its aventurine and its incredibly busy pattern that was so reminiscent of the early Peltiers. Its still a favorite (I just love green and orange together) and, I think, a really underrated marble.

This box has the Joker I run pretty much from start to finish...the second marble down in the first row was part of first batch off; the second marble down in the second row was the last batch off, kind of a Miami Dolphin marble with oxblood, another favorite. Some examples in hand are knockouts ( such as the last marble in the first row.)

Okay, how to classify these?

Marbles from Linda Moore Simmons and Edna Eaton from various runs headed by Dave.

These samples were made while at Mark Matthews' this past October 2017.

Brett Young and Larry Zengel (Hot House Glass) did the gathering.

Rounded in the Shamrock Mark II marble machine.

Marbles range from 1.28" to 1.34" diameter.

The one run I can identify as "Wonder Woman" 10/01/2013.

For reference, the three small marbles are 0.59" diameter and the large marble is 1.32" diameter.

Sincerely,

John McCormick

Did you get them all?  We have a couple of good ID-ers.  Will probably show up soon.

Steph,

The bottom right in the photo of six (first post) has not been identified.

I brought some samples in bags with tags from Linda. I was busy doing something else when the marbles where pulled.

Many of these runs have such a wide range in variation!

Yes, maybe someone can help.

John
