  1. Great collection!! I probably wouldn't be able to resist playing with it if I had one! My favorite is the spirally tower with the solid cup. I would think you'd have to go to an auction to find these. I've never seen them in a shop or at a flea. Thanks for sharing your photos!
  2. Ha! Don't know what made me use "clockwise" instead of "left to right"! Maybe marbles have gotten me to think in circles! Thanks! I've never heard of a "Perfection" box. The Akro must have been gorgeous in mint condition because it is impressive even with so many dings on it! I'm thinking that the Champions were part of a dug find because of all the little pieces of imbedded dirt. They've all enjoyed a good outdoor life, but like my cats, they are now indoor marbles that are beautifully aged. Thanks!

    Vitros?

    Hi Everyone, I came across these when putting away the marbles from my post a couple of minutes ago and decided to see if I could get positive identification on them. At first, I was thinking Master Marble Sunbursts, but the clear glass base reminds me of a Vitro. So Vitro would be my first guess. Master is my second. Foreign, like an Imperial would be my third, but these seem to be nice quality marbles. I think these came from a bag, but I didn't label them so can't be sure... They are 0.65' btw. Thanks!
  4. Just wondering if someone can help with identifying these marbles. Here are my guesses (clockwise, starting from top right--couldn't rotate) 1. Akro 0.68" base is clear cherry red w/ opaque white swirl 2. Jabo, but hoping Peltier 0.65" looks to be totally opaque colors 3. Champion or WV swirl 0.62" translucent orange swirl that could be the base swirled with a creamed butter yellow opaque glass. 4. Peltier, maybe a sunset 0.65", base looks clear and slightly bubbly, with translucent orange ribbons and wispy white ribbons swirling throughout They are all wel-played with, but are keepers for me because of the colors and patterns. Just wanted to know what I'm keeping. Thanks for your help, once again!
  5. Thanks! Lee's sounds especially interesting being that they have the memorabilia. Maybe one day I'll check it out.
  6. I was thinking that someone should reintroduce this game now that marble racing is becoming a thing. I'd play with it. A lot of teachers might have students play with it, too. Cool!
  7. Whoa! Beautiful!! I would have kept that one, too!
  8. Just wondering if there is a museum of marbles that holds items like these.
  9. That is a beautiful marble! I've never even seen one of those "in hand". Here's one (nothing fancy like yours) that, as I rolled some marbles around in a tray, I got all excited over until I gave it a roll and saw the chip. My heart dropped for a minute. But, I will hold on to it for a while because I might be able to strategically display it on a shelf or something... Great topic, btw!
  10. Nice!!! I remember seeing masks that had animal faces and designs on them somewhere, way before this coronavirus came along. They were so cute and uplifting. Bless your daughter's heart and all the people who work with her as well! They are all heroes, facing this virus with all its challenges! You must be so proud of her! Take care!
  11. One of my cats just uses my computer as her bum warmer. My other cat thinks he's a chicken on eggs and sits on my marbles when I have them splayed over the table. LOL!
  12. Funny! I think it was in USA Today that I read marble racing is becoming popular since there are no sports events to go to. Maybe another marble fad is around the corner.
  13. I think that might be a good idea, putting the electronic devices away. How much can the news change in a day, anyway. But, we all have to save some time for Marble Connection, right? I'm enjoying reading what everyone is posting. Gotta just make the best of things. I'm also catching up on old-fashioned letter writing. Take care!

    Nice! What is the marble in the middle?
  15. I didn't know marble "derbies" were a thing! It was fun to watch everyone fighting for the lead! I almost felt that the marbles had real drivers!Thanks for sharing! Subscribed.
  16. Hi Steph, Waving back Good luck on completing your "bombucha" paperwork!
  17. Thanks! I find that one of the difficulties for me, as a novice, is remembering to keep all these characteristics in mind. When I remember to look for one, I forget to compare another.😬
  18. Wow! Nice surprise! Thanks for all of your help! To think it was just sitting in my box of marbles waiting for me to pay attention to it. I can see why Al Oregon was feeling Marble King. I'm currently digging through my Marble Kings and came across something that resembled the peltier a little. It has that somewhat pronounced seam. Thanks again!
  19. Hi Steph and Marble Connection People, Here's some pics of a marble that I think is a Peltier but was thinking that I might be a Jabo because it was bigger than most of my Peltiers (.66") and the marble was in too great a shape to find in an antique store for a dollar. Also, one of the seams looks more "pointed" than my other pelts. Do you think it could be an NLR? I won't be disappointed if it is a Jabo, but would be stoked if it is an NLR.
  20. Hi Steph, I'll just post some pictures in the ID forum. Thanks!
  21. Just a few more. I think they are all peltiers.😶
  22. Just realized that a Vitro snuck in there, 2nd row #5. Oops.
  23. Lot's of time to separate my marbles. Here are some of my Peltiers. Pretty common ones, but I love the colors and especially love the ones with the bubbly transparent bases. (I kind of have some doubt about the third row sixth marble. It's larger and the seam that is visible has more of a point than the other Pelts that I have. Maybe someone has some feedback on that one.) I love the "muddy' one that I just got. There's a little dark bluish thread that swirls with the ribbons.
  24. Sometimes the meandering path is the best one! I love to meander and "go without a plan". It drives my husband nuts. He likes the straight and focused path. LOL!
