  1. OMG BerryB! I would love to turn a case like yours into a coffee table! And that corner is to die for! I would do that in a heartbeat if my husband gave me the go ahead! It's like those I Spy books! Soooooooo interesting to look at! But, you seem to have an eye for making what could be a potential clutter quite organized and eye appealing. Thanks everyone for sharing! Even Chad's printer tray would be an awesome glass top coffee table. I need to find someone's garage and a few tools. The downside of living in a condo.
  2. Thanks Steph! I need to do some catching up. Not sure why I haven't been looking through or for marbles lately. Maybe the days are getting colder so I'm trying to get out into the woods to enjoy the fresh air and wildlife. And trying to work off last winter's fuel reserves before I start to refuel, if you know what I mean. Any chance of giving the marbles a swoosh to see some of the other sides? Thanks.
  3. Even the white marbles have different swirls, opaqueness, tints. It's hard to pack these away, still.
  4. That Reticello Marble Making video was so mesmerizing! Totally magical. I can watch it over and over. Thanks for sharing Chad!
  5. If I compare it to your scan, it looks like this marble has more bubbles and the white patch stays closer to the surface than the vitros?
  6. Glad to see you up and about, Boris64! Marbles, vitamins, I guess they both make people feel good. Take care!
  7. Wow! Learning a lot! I never knew that there were such a thing as metallic pelts (Al Oregon's Post)!
  8. LOL! Must have been an awesome win when you succeeded "I'llhavethat1"!
  9. It does look like a lemon! Like a marble that Vincent van Gogh might have created. Fun!
  10. I was just going into the Gallery and started looking at the MarbleAlan photos of the German handmades. . . Were these REALLY played with??? They are such works of art! Hard to believe... Just saying...
  11. Bruce, I always thought that your marble avatar was a photographic effect! Cool.
  12. I just read that wire pulled marbles use a single ribbon. Is that how you distinguish a wire pull from a WV swirl? Thanks.

    I love when you all show off your finds!
  14. OMG! I was reading through this thread and came across my post which makes no sense to me! Auto-correct must have done something and I just didn't proofread. Anyway, what I probably meant to say was, since I am still a novice, I don't usually spend much on a marble. So if I am snagged, it won't break the bank too much. If I were going to spend hundreds of dollars, I'd do that at a marble show. I'm seeing marbles on auction going for $300 to $500 so these folks must know what they are doing.
  15. So many marbles that I haven't even heard about before! Thank you again, Stephenb. Another homerun for the world of marbles!
  16. Who manufactured those? Christensen? That aqua looking blue marble is beautiful!
  17. I love that flaming marble. What perfect colors for it!
  18. I see one normal rainbo in the second bag from the top. Was that thrown in there to throw us off the trail? LOL! Also, is that a "butt-crack" in the bottom bag on the right? (Actually, I'm seriously asking this question, somewhat. Also known as a diaper fold?) So it could be a new marble? Sorry for all the question marks. I'm not yet confident with my id'ing skills, so I don't commit. 🥴
  19. Hi Boris, Hope you don't mind me trying to practice id'ing on your marbles. Third pic--modern, vacor? Fourth pic-reminds me of a peltier sunset on the left because of the bubbles and color. I really love the green flaming marble (Alley?)! Also, is that an orange and green popeye at the middle bottom? That looks really nice. Thanks for showing us your treasure!
  20. Are those Vitros in the bag at right and center in the first photo?
  21. Oh no! Take care! Looks like you have a lot of marbles to keep your mind off of it! Nice assortment. My favorites--what looks like a multi-colored Bennington and the Akro corkscrew with the creamy base and black swirl. Also, like the one that looks like a mineral, brown, center-right. Get well soon!🌻
