    I recognize that! That's one of the moons of Jupiter!

    To me the texture of the white does look modern and/or foreign. However, I don't recognize it as a Vacor style, so maybe one of the slag guys will still claim it as one of theirs.

    Hello. Welcome . That's a lot of marbles for one thread. Try starting a thread for each one of those groups. They appear to mostly be modern ... mostly Vacor de Mexico. However, there's at least one older marble in there. (2nd picture, third marble down, green and red with a thin brown stripe. This one is a 1950's Vitro All-Red. Also called a blackline all-red because of that brown stripe.)
  5. Marbles as insulators? That might be new info for me .... Neat article. I smiled when I saw how Art Fisher had designed marble rollers. It's funny how many people took or were given credit for inventing key elements of the marble making process. Pretty sure Berry Pink also took or was given that credit. Akro too.

    The state of Michigan is composed of two peninsulas. The Upper Peninsula is above Wisconsin ... and is a lot bigger than I realized. The lower part ... I didn't realize that was also a peninsula, but sure enough that "piece of land" is almost surrounded by water -- by Lake Michigan, Lake Huron and even some of Lake Erie, and Lake St. Clair.
  9. Nice find! Thanks for sharing. And thanks for the size estimate. I'm so used to seeing nice big pictures that I forget how cute and little the boxes must look in hand. Japanese glassworkers never imagined that almost 100 years later people around the world would enjoy their little toys so much.

    Final 2

    A for effort. I'll go with "Transparent Swirl". If older then possibly Champion Agate. If from the last 30 years, then possibly Jabo. (Wow ... hard to believe there are Jabo Classics which are almost 30 years old already.) Since you have a lot of older marbles, I'm leaning Champion.

    Final 2

    I still can't tell if I'm seeing one continuous Akro corkscrew ribbon, or a looser swirlier structure. Can you tell what the white ribbon is doing? A flash photo or an underwater photo might reduce reflections and help see what's inside.
