  1. real kid, real marble collection much love
  2. It is oxblood, yes. It's called an Eggyolk Oxblood. It's in the Moss Agate family, not Popeye.
  3. One of the subjects which brings it up is that Masters can have lashes -- and when people realize that it tends to grow their Master collections. But I thought it would be fun to see how far we could extend the examples -- to Master and beyond.
  4. In the first row, the middle one -- brown -- is a bennington. The one on the right with light blue splotches and other faint colors is probably also a bennington. It would be called a "fancy bennington". The rest are not benningtons. The ball-bearing variety of steelie has a certain charm but pretty much no value. For most collectors the important thing to do with steelies is to make sure they aren't touch marbles they could damage. Probably futile to try to clean it.
  5. How nice. Clearies have such charming simplicity and the little bags are sharp. (and the other mibs are nice too )
  6. Nothing jumps out at me, but they're comfortably vintage. And you have a bumblebee. ❤️ The big blue ball is intriguing.
  7. I'll say it's possible, in the same hopeful but not confident way as before. It could be hard to get a solid ID.
  8. The red and yellow is a Vacor machine-made marble. Style name: Red Devil. This page is helpful with Vacors. https://www.billes-en-tete.com/liste_billes.php I think the other two are contemporary handmades but I wouldn't be able to say who. There are many individuals who have made marbles on a small scale. There are Asian companies whose names we don't know who have mass-produced handmades. Vacor de Mexico had a handmade line called the Atmosphere. There was also a company in England which sold handmades which might have been made there in England -- I can't recall the name or if the marbles were made on site. Vacor Atmospheres have been popular among collectors but I'm not sure how easy it would be to confirm you had one without the packaging. That said, the second marble looks to me like it could be an Atmosphere. Here is a 12-year-old thread with some pictures of Atmospheres: https://marbleconnection.com/topic/6433-show-your-atmospheres/
