Recommended Posts

I thought maybe a new query would stir things up a bit !! Postings of  your favorite or any other W.Va. manufactured mib !!

One of my all time favorite mibs, the Alley Shimmering Spruce :

Yes !! Av. one of my first av. marbles if not the first, it may have been a pelt I'm not sure ??  You have some West Virginia mibs, there were many different manufacturers from W.Va. Hopefully others will post theirs and I can learn something about them, I seem to have a hard time I.D.ing some W.Va. mibs !!

A few Davis Marble Works.

The one below glows. The cream off colored white is a certain Vitrolite which glows bright. Some of the Davis and Jackson marbles contain this special Vitroloite cullet.  Not all Davis or Jacksons glow.

No glow.  Made from old 6 oz. coke bottles and a tan Vitrolite cullet.
