Row 1:  I think the big one is a Jabo Classic ... which would have come after 1990 and before 2008.    Next we probably have a cat's eye.  And I think the third marble is a Vacor. 

Row 2:  First is a handmade.  I presume this is old. It's got such a lot of color and seems to be in such good shape, I hope it's old.  Looks special to me, but I know little about what's common or not in handmades.  The next marble appears to be a Vacor.  And the last might be an Imperial. 

Vacors are modern marbles from Mexico.  Imperials are modern marbles from Asia -- we call them Imperials because the Imperial Toy Co. is one of the companies which distributed them in the U.S.  

Rows 3 and 4 might all be Vacors.

Row 2 marble one is a German Handmade. The bright colours put it in the "English colour" pallet. Looks to be a Divided Core construction. Nice marble from the 1920-1930's

Good info I was along those lines of thinking on this one also.
