Cat Eye's With Holes On The Vane


Recommended Posts

i've seen some with bubbles--they look weird because of the reflective properties of the bubbles. i've not seen any with actual holes.

they are probably early Japanese cat's-eyes, which would mean they are not rare, although some of the early single-color 4-vaned ones out of Japan were very nicely made...they had really FLAT vanes that met dead-center in the marble so if you look at them from the "end" where a seam would be, they make a + .

I tried to find mine but I think I may have gotten rid of them. (I know, can you believe it?)

They sorta frustrated me. I remember at least one which had silvery bubbles on the vanes. Probably aqua.

Another definitely had holes, with bubbles going through the vanes. How many? Can't remember. Not a large number. It was green. It was a little bigger than average but not a shooter.

And I never could figure out what I wanted to do with them. The colors weren't quite right for me to want to save them for that. I like vivid and bright colors on my foreign cats. And the green one might have been nicked. hmmm. Can't quite remember but I know I kept going back and forth over what to do with them. I may finally have decided that I was spending too much time worrying about damaged error marbles and I may have put them in a big lot to get rid of so I wouldn't "waste" any more time with them. :blush:
