China Marbles

Recommended Posts

I had these in my possession once upon a time. All I had at the time was a scanner for picture taking.

The blue/white looped opaque in the back on the right is German. Similar marbles have been dug in Lauscha. And I have found several Lightning strikes here in Europe. A friend of mine found over 25 in Denmark....so not sure they were made in China.

Steph, do you remember when that picture was first taken (and/or posted)? Must have been a while ago in the 'scanner' days but I remember seeing it before in an old thread.

I first posted them back in February of 2009. They were loaned to me for purposes of discussion. Found in a dumpsite in Shanghai. But the type of dumpsite was not known. Household garbage? Glass company site? Mercantile district? Not known.

Here's a pic the marbles' owner took of some others from the lot.

I have a bunch of these as well. I bought them in Amana in the late 1980s or early 1990s. The story I was told, as Steph mentioned above, is that they were dug at a dump site in Shanghai and bought at a flea market there.

Who might have worn it?

(Is it a child's necklace, a woman's, fun, dressy, ...?)
