Brownies Marbles


Recommended Posts

Bought these marbles in 1987 from Brownie at the Springfield Ohio monthly antique and flea market show. Brownie would not tell me anything about them. How old are they?, I do not know. Two things I do know about the marbles. They were not recently made when I bought them, and none of them had a conventional pontil.

brownie= robert brown, ceramic china marble artist?

yepper, robert brown ceramic marble man, remember the day you and i and some of the heavy hitters were at haneys and the big hitters were buying the guineas at $300-$350 a pop and we didn't get any because our pockets were not that deep, well haney got those (a box full) from robert brown and brownie got them at a garage sale!!! Brownie always told me he got most of his marbles from the dump, well he did, and the dump was located at the rear of his prpperty, but being a preacher man and not wanting to outright lie, he would take marbles and place them in his dump and then mysteriously find them!!! go figure
