Well I finally started collecting Vitro's. I picked up 2 opals, a buttermilk a bunch of yellow jackets and a few helmets, green face, black face, red face  a blue face and one a kind of yellow, before this I had a really nice trilite and some blackies stuffed away in a jar. All I have is a pic of the trilite for now. Resembles a cler face helmet with red, white, blue & yellow stripes, Oop I just seen some old helmet pics also, these are my old ones, I don't believe I have them anymore ??

This is a dandy marble. I have a general rule . . . if you find a Tri-lite with good black on it - keep it! They aren't that easy to come by.

At one time it was the only vitro I owned, it sits at the head of the pack right now, I have never seen another like it, the closest to black was the black face helmets. I just started on some Vitro's, an opal, buttermilk , helmets of every color, I lucked out & found someone who wanted to sell so I kinda cherry picked, but I paid what they were worth, so a fair deal.

The overlooked Vitro Tomato marbles. They can be 7/8 inch or 5/8 inch. In normal light they look like a common red game marble. They are translucent red and orange with a pattern and some you can find the cut lines. They were used as game marbles, in Vitro jewelry , etc.

5/8 inch below. They will look more solid red in hand. DSC07549.JPG.a143b133fc57565fe99de8ecefa3a803.JPGDSC07553.JPG.83b1906e85c0cd832ab26263555db7e6.JPGDSC07552.JPG.b4880f14c1b22ae6340a8bb609378ac6.JPG

Box of Vitro Large 7/8 inch size game marbles and the board which required the 7/8 marbles. I know of four of these boards. 


The Vitro Tomato marbles are overlooked 99% of the time. Even game marbles can be collectible.

Another very hard to find Vitro marble is the Alligator Eye. The first ones noticed showed up about three years ago.  Several sold for $100.00 each or more. They are about 5/8 and a clear base.
