    Season's Greetings

    Have a great Christmas to those that celebrate and an equally great few days to those that don't.

    Doctor Who

    I grew up with Dr Who (Tom Baker was 'my Doctor'), and was glad to see the relaunched series, but found it got too silly over the past few seasons. I tried the new series with low expectations, but was really impressed. It felt much more like the Doctor Who of my childhood than any of the recent seasons.

    Help identifying

    Agreed on Master for first two. Last one could be a misformed Master, or WV swirl of a few companies.

    Cryptid Vitro or?

    Are we positive they're USA and not French?
  5. ManofKent

    More oddballs

    I'm clueless with those but they look vintage

    Board Update

    Thanks to all - I'd have been lost without this great resource and community (possibly better off but still πŸ˜‰).

    Happy Thanksgiving

    Have a good one over the pond.
  8. Thanks for the update - I find the gallery pages very useful.

    Mostly Pix - Vitro

    Thanks - yes that looks right.

    Mostly Pix - Vitro

    New acquisition - any dating (or other info appreciated):
  11. ManofKent

    Chance to purchase...

    Bottom two are cheap Asian, the Alox are fakes (probably Marble King cats), the glass swan might be rebagged Jabo but I'm not sure.

    All Red Black Line?

    Yes - Vitro All Red BlackLine

    Couple more IDs please

    Agreed on Vitro Conqueror, Agreed on WV Swirl, although I'd lean Heaton if pushed - not sure on the far left, might be one of Champion's filament filled marbles rather Vitro, would want a closer look.

    Id req.

    Can I throw Vitro Anacortes into the possibles - that teal looks plausible... Tricky one

    Ready for cats?

    I'm not convinced they were intentional - could easily be glass changes, but they could be the glassmaker playing around. Most larger bags seems to have one or two in them though and that seems a high percentage if they weren't intentional. Basically I'm on the fence πŸ™‚

    Found Gladden All Red?

    Colours look more Akro than Vitro to my eyes.
  17. ManofKent

    Id req.

    I think so (couldn't rule out an odd Asian though).

    Cats, cats, cats!

    Marlowe Peterson (I think with Larry Castle again) produced a thin book/booklet on cats that's long out of print but not too hard to track down - it's pretty slim but about the only attempt to specifically look at cats eyes (no idea where my copy is... must hunt it out). They're still under appreciated and have little financial worth. Off the top of my head - I'd try and get all the vitro variants, particularly looking out for 'hybrid' types where two colours blend. The original Marble King 'St Mary's' four colour cats are a nice find (there are later Marble King reissues and Marble King two colour cats). There are a few interesting oddities produced by Bogard that are worth tracking down too.

    Agreed - some of the Mylee run look quite similar
  20. ManofKent

    Nice Cobalt Blue and White 7/8 Any ideas

    I agree on probably Akro
  21. ManofKent


    Anacortes seems a decent guess
  22. ManofKent

    Vitro? Jabo?

    Vitro Conqueror
  23. ManofKent

    Vitro patch?

    Vitro Conqueror
