  1. I agree 100% on each and every marble.
  2. wvrons


    I can agree with that. I was not sure if it was black or dark red ? I think the spots in the snow globes are different than the one above. It was a mistake by who ever produced it. Mistakes are difficult to pin down to one company. The more opinions or thoughts, the better any identification will be. This marble will have the same value who ever made it.
  3. I agree with Ric,. One of the easiest ways to spot a Wales, Pincer, or Asia, Japan, patch marbles is the small clear jagged window opening at the seam or cut line. Usually where the white and the other color meets. If it is a single solid color marble, this small clear window will still be there. These Wales, Pincer, Imperial, Asia or Japan type patch or solid marbles also have a seam or cut line very much like, almost exact as Master. These very curved ,more pointed cut lines are with these marbles only. Usually one cut line is curved more to a rounded point outward and the opposite cut lin
  4. I have 36 wooden Chinese checker boards. No pictures of them.

    You are probably correct with Vitro.

    I would guess Vitro or Akro. The white flakes might be unmelted chemicals ? What size is it ?
  7. It has two seams or cuts. One cut in the first picture and a second cut in the last picture. Cuts or seams are usually on opposite sides across of each other, but a few can end up close together. The elongated hot glass stream or glob is cut as it falls into the cutter. It is cut once, sometimes folds over on its self, and cut a second time. As fast as you snap your fingers. Every machine made marble is cut twice. This marble is a little messed up, May be a messed up corkscrew ? Does it glow ? Most Peltier NLR show both seams or cuts well. Some marbles especially CAC actually show only one c
  8. Looks like total different marbles. All we have is the pictures to go by. If the picture does not actually look like the marble, the identification cannot be accurate. They are not slags. Probably not Alley. Maybe Champion.
  9. I thought WV swirls. Alley on the left and maybe the right ? I agree the white does not look like the white on slags. The left sure looks like the very twisted pushed together swirl pattern on lots of Alleys. Like slags, most Alleys also have more white. But he made the green swirls without as much white. I just do not have pictures of them. Most slags have a easily seen cut line. The white color on most slags is not stretched and thin like the second marble above. I don't think I have seen many slags with the wadded up pattern like on the left marble above Maybe slags, maybe swirls ???? So
  10. No CAC. Size helps with 90% of identifications.

    What color is the base glass ? Purple, Brown, Green, etc. About every WV swirl company made these dark base and white swirls. Some can be narrowed down and some cannot. With the damage on this one the value is zero. So a exact identification is not one of high research. To identify these you need a few known for sure examples from each of the different companies for comparison. When you know for sure, the value is 25 cents to $1.00. The value is low because of the difficulty in identification and so many numbers of them available.

    Messed up WV swirl. Common color, could be Alley, Heaton, Cairo, Champion, Ravenswood etc. Not intentional, non standard production as happened almost every hour of every day. At 250 per minute for 24 hours in only one day, lots of mistakes happen. First red flag or indication is the rough roll marks. Each hot glass glob has to spin in all different directions on its own axis in every groove of the rolls. If it spins one direction to much, this happens. Caused by many things, not correct size for the rolls, temperature, roll speed, etc. Might have been one or 100+. Depends on how fast the
