  1. Mike was a generous soul. I wouldn't have acquired and saved the old Peltier machine if it wasn't for him. Rest in peace my friend.
  2. Here is the Nivison-Weiskopf machine - WJ Miller company catalog says machine is hand fed by a "gatherer". In the pic you can see the WJ Miller shear. Nivison_Weiskopf was a clear glass container manufacturer and a major lithography printer. My best guess is litho balls....
  3. I agree with John - that looks like a Chris Robinson creation.
  4. Steph nailed it. Could also be Akro Agate, Christensen Agate, or even Peltier. They all made hand gathered amber slags.
  5. One is a copper based red and the other is a selenium based red.
  6. Looks more like a Master to me...😆
  7. This catalog is interesting - year? I like how it still shows the Albright relationship via the Polished Clay marble additions in the listed assortment boxes.
  8. I have a tangential thought....when did Peltier start dealing with Groper? I wonder if creating special 2 color and 3 color marbles to fill a defined marketing option offered by Groper, led to the creation of of the fancier Peltier styes such as the Golden Rebel, etc.
  9. I have them all from 1903 up till 1934. Also have every Montgomery Wards ad from 1886 up till 1934.
  10. I believe that Albright was the original sole distributor - I have newspaper articles talking about such...memory is a little rusty. I bet Albright was already in bed with Groper prior to CA existing. Albright existed from early 1900's up till recent days - still made industrial marbles in Ravenna up till the 90's.
