Was surprised to find this red/white Amst- swirl,it's my first and only.

I found this one a few weeks ago but it looks more orange in hand and it has that funky crystallisation in the red/orange color.

Codeg - 50's/60's - shown as Foreign made but I think they belong in this thread...

Interesting that they're Wire Pulls (well and one clear one) but the box art say's Dazzlers. Seller assured me they're original to the box and I've no reason to doubt them.

I've been familiar with the box for a long time, but the connection with Veiligglas is a relatively new discovery, so it's good to be reminded of it.

I'm fairly confident that a large proportion of the 50's and 60's Solitaire sets with wooden bases are Veiligglas too (relatively common over here). The later Codeg ones with the plastic bases seem to be Asian marbles.

Richard...really nice to get a perspective on the mibs you are finding in the UK.  Those Veiligglas are great. John

Very nice Winnie. That purple colour, particularly when used with yellow or green seems very distinctively Veiligglas.

Now I understand the question you asked yesterday about Shell's soft swirls.

Manof,The yellow/purple swirls are hard to find here and the purple/green ones are easy to come by,do you find the white-red blue swirls in England?

Steph,when I see a marble which I think might be foreign,I prefer to wait out on your reaction because I do not want to complicate it.

On the marbles of Shell,I was not sure wether America has made those pastel colored swirls,i only knew that Veiligglas made them,now I know America made them aswell.

Purple/Green are relatively common, I've seen the odd yellow/purple. Yet to see a white red/blue.

I've just gotten my first clear-based one -- nice to see it's like one of Winnie's in her next-to-last picture!

Lovely. I've yet to come across a clear-based one.

So nice to see all these 'over the pond' mibs.  Keep it up Richard!  John

Thanks. Found another 1" swirl (still looking without success for blue ones):

I have not been able to add to this in a while, I think I can once again. =} That yellow sliding towards orange is really bright and rich.

So you've had yellows and oranges and browns, but not that shade of amber?

I mean by the opaque marbles,it's the first one I've seen with amber.

The wirepull's and transparant swirls do have the amber color.
