    Modern or vintage

    Modern on the right. For sure. On the left? The structure looks a little vintage but I see why you're unsure. I'm leaning modern myself.

    Goodness. The coloring and the ribbon ends look modern to me. Mostly.

    I was thinking maybe Akro or Anacortes Vitro on the third. Which could mean anywhere from the 1930's to 1990 on that one! But since the grouping is mostly older, I guess lean away from the Anacortes idea and more to the Akro idea (or what Richard said).

    Agreed on Master for first two. Last one could be a misformed Master, or WV swirl of a few companies.

    You're right about these being Benningtons. As to how modern marbles get into older collections ... it almost always manages to happen. Someone knows where the marble jar is and slips some newer ones in there. Maybe. And as to how to tell ... oh, that is a long story. Sometimes colors or textures. Often structure. This one doesn't look too very new. Could be from an intermediate period. Vintage is usually considered before 1970. Maybe this is from around then. But the colors and structure look _more_ like a modern Mexican or Asian marble than they do like the closest American marbles they resemble. The way the ribbons join at the short seam in your picture here makes this one look closest to being a Master marble, if it were American. That is a "seam" or a "cutline", by the way, not a pontil in this photo. Pontil would be for a handmade or handgathered marble. This is machinemade.

    I put em on FB too and consensus was Vitro although nobody proffered a twin.

    I fixed the pictures, I'm not sure what happened. Sorry about the titles, wasn't sure what to title them. I'll come up with different names going forward. Thank you very much for your replies to my threads. Sorry for my ignorance but how can I tell which are modern compared to older ones? At one time my dad had told me these marbles were around when he was a child (he was born in 1955) but my grandma would never let him play with them, so I was surprised that one of your replies said they were modern (I'm not questioning your response by the way). I read you should look for a pontil, but I also read that in some cases they may have been ground and polished so they may be hard to see.

    I don't see pictures. P.s. when posting a lot of ID threads, it would be helpful not to name them all the same thing. A title such as "Bennington?" would help a lot.

    Many beads were made with the same materials as marbles were made with.

    Wow @ your lutzy one. Second one is a German handmade, but I'm not sure of the style name. Third one might be Master.

    These would be modern marbles, and foreign. Mexican or Asian.

    Possibly Master on the first two.

    At close to an inch and swirly, that first one might be Jabo. Or it might be Alley.

    I don't know what these 3 are. It's hard to see in the pictures but the last one has green swirls inside. I'm not sure how to get a better picture.

    I haven't been able to identify these. There's white and the rest of it is clear, I'm not sure why it looks yellow in the last picture. The last one is a bit different than the first 2, the white kind of looks like a C inside.

    I have about 20 of these so I chose a few that represent the design and colors. I have no idea what these are. The black is very shiny and the ones that look yellow are much closer to orange, not sure why they look yellow. Also the white is closer to gray.

    I think I've identified the first one correctly as a Lutz but I cannot figure out the other 2. It's hard to tell in the picture but the last one is translucent about 2/3 of it (the bottom in the first picture and the side facing the camera in the second picture).

    I know these are all clay which basically have no value. I was wondering if anyone knew why the second one has a hole all the way through it?

    I'm pretty sure I've identified these correctly as Bennington, and from what I've read they have little value. I'm surprised how shiny the glaze still is on the second one after all these years, doesn't look like it was ever played with.

    Cryptid Vitro or?

    Are we positive they're USA and not French?
