    Peltier

    Ron, you are right. I have so much on my mind right now, was NOT THINKING straight on this. I read it as a "Red Tracer" not "Red Angel", sorry about that, Ron is very correct on what he said. Chuck G---

    Peltier

    Kaboo, a pelt "Red Angel" for most of us, has to have a translucent white base. This family type named marble will change if the base is a different color, but keep the same make-up. Most of the "Angel" family types come in red, green, blue, and yellow, now there could be other colors out there but so far i have not found any. This pattern stays the same but the base is a tannish color which will change the name. This is a very interesting group and you can actually run it in many directions to what it may actually be.

  3. I agree with Ron, a rainbo where it seems as though a couple ribbons (washed over) the base. Some of these examples are hard to tell. Chuck G---

    Popeye?

    I agree with Ron, not a (hybrid). Here is an old photo of some (hybrids). Chuck G---
  5. Rich, a very nice example, need a description if you do not mind please, my old computer doe snot show colors to well. Chuck G---
  6. Ron is very correct. "Blue Galaxy"--a variant blue opaque base, with swirls of yellow and (has) to contain black av. in a possible swirl pattern. Now there could possibly be variants to this color combo. A time frame for these examples would be a (guess) by me but could probably come close. A very good marble to have in a collection, rates pretty high for a Peltier marble. Chuck G---
  7. Peltier Mibber, i am curious, never heard of this one at all. If you would like to discuss this more, e-mail me at charlesm_garrett_985@comcast.net Chuck G---
  8. How many remember this wonderful past collector? Chuck G---
  9. Meant to tell everyone that (HALF ) of these are (BLACK). Chuck G---
  10. Some folks asked about (large) akro popeye patches. Chuck G---
  11. Bobby, welcome to the forum, super nice information here to learn from. Chuck G---
  12. Vance, kinda looks pelt to me also. Peltier was super notoriously for having some very wild cut or seams to their examples. (ALL) marbles have (TWO) cut lines, however i have found (what looks) like three cut lines. One MUST analyze the (glass flow) and study it more. Glass flow, cut lines, and color formulas is very important to understanding who actually made the example. From one marble maker to the other, glass formulas and machines could produce something pretty wild, and yes wild and different is out there. Get it in your mind to analyze all this and the more marbles you get thru those fingers the more you will see and get a huge grasp of things. In all my years of this hobby, could not even guess HOW MANY examples i have had go thru these hands. Chuck G--
  13. Mibs, very nice example. A friend and i was lucky enough to purchase some 16th and 17th century dug items from Europe and this (real early) stuff resembles this Earthenware. I must say, all this stuff no matter what it is fun to discuss. Most collectors here seek the early American Toy examples of this type of Earthenware. Chuck G--
  14. Dindo, an Ace example will have a (translucent) whitish base, some example a deeper translucent than others, almost to an opaque, you can get some light thru the translucency base. St Marys cats eyes will for most part have the internal vanes a (cross thru) look to them, some may be wavey a little also. Take your hands and close them flat, fingers all together, then hold one on top of the other, this is what a St Marys will look like. St Marys did make some really super nice cats eyes. I will add also with the Ace factor in akro that some akro did have colored Ace base glass. Some may consider this (NOT) an ace but i would, but that is me. Chuck G--
  15. I find this quite often, and (for me) as having many discussions with Ron S that it is just air pockets from a bad chemical mix that was not compatible to the desired example. I would NOT think that any metallic component would stay in an air bubble per say and not float to the surface. I have yet to find what i could deffinitly say is a metallic air bubble. Now these contemp makers could probably do this but the old machine mades would always float to the surface when it came to any metallic component. From akro to jabos i see what is considered metallic all are on the (surface), (HOWEVER) i will add this, (ANYTHING) is possible and may be found. Seeing a lot of these examples on the forums, it (seems to me) that a lot of these could be Kokomos when they started production. Making a theory and presumption is part of the hobby, but as i always say (PROVE IT) with an example. This will always make it clear for others. Chuck G--
