Ally Opp Posted April 1, 2010 Report Share Posted April 1, 2010 I purchased this large marble on ebay for under $10.00 a few days ago. I believe it is contemporary because of the left hand twist and the pristine condition. Also the colors are a little odd and the design is funky. I would call it an end of day type marble with a clear ghost core. It is just a smidge under 2 inches and very round. It has a single well ground pontil on the bottom. The top of the marble has a tiny bit of wavier glass where it was gathered. Has anyone seen any similar marbles or know of any modern makers? How about some of the Italian glass houses? Do they produce larger marbles like this? It has not been polished or buffed. All of the original circular striations are apparent on the surface of the glass. Any ideas?
