  1. You may have noticed a couple of changes. @Chad G. has agreed to be our newest moderator. With my gratitude! Go easy on him. Also, there's a new ability to give reactions to posts, which can give reputation points to members. Have some fun with that.

  6. A couple more threads to look at: http://marbleconnection.com/topic/21874-lawrence-glass-novelty-company-from-the-ground/ http://marbleconnection.com/topic/13019-alleys-blue-skies-and-blush-lines/ http://marbleconnection.com/topic/22071-st-marys-alleys/ Most of these pix are from auctions. I try to keep track of sellers and other sources now, but when I started this thread I didn't have all the names stored, so I may still be missing some IDs. From past Rinesmarbles auctions, these are Alleys dug at Pennsboro, placing their date of origin around 1

  7. I decided to make a sticky post for people to share their exciting marble scores. Such posts always inspire but they get lost over time, so let's post them here where they will remain on top. Sadly I have not had a good score in a long time, but this score from 2017 was my greatest of all time, worthy of sharing here. Please refrain from asking here whether featured marbles are for sale/trade. If the owner wants to sell, they can post in the buy/sell forum. Thanks!

  12. Agreed Jason, any and all things added for benefit of the members use, ease of access & or navigation of the site will attract new ones. I really like the one click "Like" (or dislike etc..) button, gonna save a lot of people a lot of key strokes. I'm not a FB guy myself, busy enough as is !!

  15. Another installment in the series of "you might be a marble collector if everything in the world looks like marbles to you!" It took me a couple of seconds before I realized I was looking at a bowl of fruit and not marbles!

  16. If anyone has a marble addiction, KEEP IT GOING! If you give it up, that's when you go koo-koo! Here's what you may receive: a straight jacket, a rubber room and a single pee-wee clearie. No marble books, either. That would be a sad life.

  17. Here is one of two Wigers that I have. This one is listed on ebay right now (ending Wednesday, May 12). In hand, it looks wet mint. The photographs changed my mind on that grade. It's pretty easy to see that there is "pocketwear". Since my wife was "retired" after 36 years with one company, we're coming to the point when some marbles and other items need to be liquidated. Surely, this is a thread that I have marked! I love the rare NLRs! Does anyone else like the "Broken Corkscrew" NLRs? Peace!

  18. Many people are aware of Akro glass items like the flower pots, ash trays, etc. Alley also made many other glass items along with the marbles. It was some competition with Akro. The best known Alley glass items other than marbles are the Chiquita children's dishes. The Alley factory in Glass Factory Hallow at Pennsboro WV was know by local people as the dish factory. Every child girl or boy who came by the Alley marble factory in Pennsboro received children's dishes free. The most common Alley dish sets are Chiquita. Most were sold as being Akro. There are two totally different s

  19. I have fallen victim to the smaller & thumbsize + "Royal Doulton" mugs as well. Oh brother, animals as well, it seems my illness has spread to other areas !! I just put this display up a month ago, slowly working my way up the wall. Went from 0 to 90 in a matter of weeks, already mounting another. Help me Spock Help me!!

  20. Hi. My name is wvron and I have been addicted to all marbles for many many years. I was warned early on. But I do not want this addiction to ever go away. It has had so many rewards from all angles. I do not regret any single week of it. I have dug marbles at almost all the marble factory sites from St.Louis to the east coast. I have helped with seven or eight marble books. I have attended hundreds of marble shows from Maine to FL to Kansas to TX and most in between. The best of it all has been the people along the journey.

  24. I did it! I stopped in at the antique mall. Well, hubby and I didn't just stop in. We spent quite a long time going up and down all the aisles. He was helping me find marbles. I found so many actually that I chose to leave some behind. They weren't fantastic. The best thing I left behind was vintage bag of Marble King cat's eyes. If it was the only thing I found I would have gotten it and counted myself lucky, but it was priced a bit high, and I already found this bunch for $25. And that was enough. One jar of "stuff" which was priced at $5 and had a few marbles, inclu
