    Peltier Glass Toy Marbles Update

    Hi boys and girls, I was sorting through my desk and found a letter from the "Marble Lady" Cathy C Runyan Scavina from 1998. I had given her one of the Peltier Honey Amber Bananas for being so helpful to me. Turns out the one I gave her was the only smaller marble in the discovery. "It is the exact same size of some of the smaller Peltier marbles that can be found in antique necklaces and pins"(Cathy C Runyan Scavina). I had often wondered what happened to that little gem now I know, I gave it ti Cathy. Sami and Mike I thought might like to have this information. There is at least one little Peltier Honey Amber Banana out there. Best wishes to all.....Joe McDonough
