Nice, Alan - no annealing fracturing?

 

No, these are perfect.  I'd say 90% of the dug ones I have seen have annealing fractures.

This one is mostly oxblood - so much so that's got blowouts galore, but I love it in spite of the as-mades. It's one of the old German "Leighton' types, just over an inch, in mint shape but heavily cratered because of the glass problems. Please forgive the pic - this wasn't taken for publication, but since you asked, Mikie...

Finally, here's a photo of a VERY old Leighton type I found at a flea market (never have found anything even close at a flea market!) that was very damaged, but the gorgeous colors and "9" are incredible.  I sold it quite a long time ago. And last, here are a couple Vitros with oxblood V's, not so hard to find but cool nonetheless.

This is an awesome looking marble, damage and all.  Thanks for posting it again.

Wow is right. I'd say there are some real keepers here - the Leighton and the egg-yolks are outstanding and the twins are super cool!

This one's kind of dark but . . .

Ric -- It's an old faceted pontil Leighton. Unfortunately it's got multiple annealing fractures. Still I wouldn't sell it for anything.

WOW... what a bunch of great marbles!! 

I must say those trays are really nice too! Really works of art! Now seeing the pieces other than marbles makes me want to get out there and find me some.

I have really enjoyed seeing all the oxblood! Y'all got more?

Mike
