Pink seamed - glass? Handmade?

Recommended Posts

Yesterday my friend called and said her mom had a jar of marbles for sale at her garage sale.  I ran over and got the marbles, most I can ID I think.  A combo of handmade, machine made - all vintage in my opinion. 

The ones that have me stumped are these pink, white, and one light blue - they feel like they are lighter weight marbles with an odd surface, a Stripe or seam  all the way around like they were 2 halves seamed together. They don’t feel like glass but they are  hard.  There is light blue one but I am not sure the blue is the same thing.  There are pink ones and whitish color ones. I am posting the marbles from the jar laid out on a board - feel free to holler out if you see something that looks like it deserves to be identified.  But what are the pink and white almost plastic feeling marbles?

I am having problems getting photos to upload - hopefully the link is working.

Good bet those are plastic.  

The rest make a nice vintage group.

Bullet mold marbles?  Unusual color, but if you're sure they're not plastic I'll take your word for it (should be pretty easy to tell in hand by feel)

Brilliant idea. Thanks.

They do not float and indeed make a clink when the go into the glass.  Thanks to the suggestion, the water seems to have cleaned a film off or something because I didn’t notice before but they are just loaded with iridescent patterns or flakes and I discovered that there are darker pink threads or stripes in at least 2 of the pink ones. 

They are still lighter weight than an average marble but they do sink. Mysterious.
