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

    I picked these three 5/8"+ out of a 99% vintage antique store marble jar. Tons of clear space and then almost oxblood like red on most (but not oxblood) with a sort of ivory white. They felt "Vitro" to me like verything does these days. Really hard to photograph due to the depth. Thoughts?

    Cryptid Vitro or?

    Thanks, Ron. I definitely see the color resemblance although yours appear veneered, yes? Do you see any Akro potential at all?

    Cryptid Vitro or?

    I just glanced at an Akro Popeye Patch and it sure looked a lot like this guy in terms of construction .

    Cryptid Vitro or?

    Didn't consider that. It is dead mint and came from the "wild" as far as I know, but that doesn't eliminate Akro. It does remind me of another anemic tri-lite that I have but this one is definitely on a different color spectrum.

    Do not adjust your monitors. Those colors are accurate. I believe it came from planet Vitro but it sure isn't typical. 5/8"

    Cloudy Sparklers or Cloudy Sunbursts?

    Thanks for the confirmation. I really like the clouds on these. I think it makes up for the lack of a ton of color below.

    Cloudy Sparklers or Cloudy Sunbursts?

    Thanks! I had the bigger one in my Akro box and the smaller was purchased as a Master Sunburst. Pleased as punch that I got both off eBay for under $10 each.
  10. Just got the left one today (a bit over 11/16") and it seems to be the tank mate of my previous one, although the right one is more vivid. I have a few non-cloudy but watery Sunbursts that look very similar.

    Still proud of this shot I took of this 11/16" beauty, shot by hand with a 15-yo small point and shoot.

    Holiday Marbles

    Wow you've got candy canes, wreathes, Christmas ornaments and even strawberry Pop Tarts in those! Here's the only Christmas Tree in my collection, found last year.

    It SAYS marble on it ....

    I'm not sure how I feel about polished marbles.
  15. Thankfully it wasn't me, and thankfully the guy was so mad he decided to sell his 50lbs of marbles (which he put in a plastic bucket) to me. 90% were pretty beat up but there was a Peltier "chocolate hermaphrodite" in there which I've since traded.
