  1. Thanks! Very good lesson!! Mike
  2. I have learned a lot in this thread. I do not see that tale tell seam on the ones I just bought. So I do agree possibly early Akro. I believe I read that Akro bought marbles from MFC and the furnaces and equipment used by MFC was bought by Akro after Charles Christensen died. That sort of says to me that Akro sold marbles that were really close to the look and manufacture of MFC. SO..... I know one thing about these marbles I just bought. I LIKE the swirls and color of the base glass. They are interesting marbles. I am still too green to pin a maker on a lot of marbles but I am getting there...... thanks to everyone here. Thanks for your help everyone! Mike
  3. Yes, I agree now that you point that out. No seam..... I think my vote is starting to move over to Akro. Thanks for the observation!! Mike
  4. Well, I just looked over on Marble Alan's site and I see an CAC that is a dead ringer for these. Interesting read about how CAC made their marbles.... (Borrowed pic below) Mike
  5. Yep, I like the one with the wave too. Almost looks like smoke. (FUN!!!) Uhhhhhh. Christensen marbles are an area I don't know anything about really. I guess I need an education on M.F. C. and Christensen Agate....
  6. Had to have a marble fix so I found these.... They were listed as Christensen but even more, I just like the way they look. The larger is 11/16" and the smaller one is 5/8". Do y'all agree?? And one more pic of the smaller one..... What say ye? Mike
  7. WOW.... those are real beauties! I like swirls and those are GREAT!! Mike
  8. Yes, I am sure I have one somewhere. I might have to get that basket and set it out to see if the Easter bunny will leave me another glass egg or 2.
  9. Well, no new marbles lately but I did run across this cool little glass egg at the antique store last weekend. The lady that runs the store was quick to point out that it "has a pontil". So as I examined it, sure 'nuff, it does have a pontil mark. I am not sure if it is very old (Probably not) but it is cool. On the small end, there is a small "wrap" where the maker didn't completely smooth it out. So, it is a neat egg and I like the colors.
  10. Those are some sweethearts! I love the one with the tongue. And it sure is nice to be able to find one in the wild! I need me an Oxblood fix now. I'm on the prowl........
  11. Now that is a beautiful marble. Really beautiful color complement. WOW.....
  12. Hello and welcome! Marbles are fun. Go get yourself some more! Mike
  13. I agree... that is awesome! Mike
