Master Cloudys


Recommended Posts

Anyone have any pix of Master Cloudys they would care to share? By Cloudy I mean the single colored translucent version. Not the patch which is sometimes called a Cloudy.


I had a bunch at one time. Got them in a 1933 cigar box. The cigar box came from the Chicago world's fair and I bet the marbles did too. But I sold most or all of them before I knew what I had. I think I might have kept a few but I'm not sure were I put them. They either don't seem easy to come by, or maybe others don't recognize what they have.

I have these is white, green, red, lavender. You often find them in Century of Progress boxes. Once you see them, you understand that the colors are unique.

I bought a bunch in Brimfield in May for next to nothing. I rarely put them up for sale because I feel that the market has not recognized their true value.

I have white one up on eBay right now, #180673342560, but the images dont accurately represent the semi-opaqueness of hem

I believe the ones on the right side of the box are Meteors. Here's the whole list of styles from a 1933 flyer:


The flyer that came from:

Those "thumbnails" aren't working now, so click here for the larger versions:



edit: look at the No. 2000 De Luxe assortment here. http://i119.photobuc...sterFlyer2a.jpg . It calls the bottom row of patches Meteors.

(Might need to double click to get full size. p.s. a larger scan is available)

p.p.s. Here's a larger version of the No. 2000 description. http://i119.photobuc...er2a_No2000.jpg

Here is nice pic of Joanne Singleton's sample box.   I just figured that Melissa was looking for something showing more detail.   And though I didn't save Dave's pix of the Cloudys aka Melon Balls he was selling,   I remembered them as being high quality.

Here's one of Dave's sets of auction pix.  Pulled it up from Facebook.   41/64".   Big photo but you might have to click through a couple of times to supersize it.    His Facebook listings are nice, by the way.  Quality marbles that you can get for about the same price as as or not much more than what a lot of commons are selling for on Facebook.

It would be cool to get some close-up pictures of the reds.  From the box photos it seems that the reds might have a different internal texture from the other colors.
