Oxblood August, It kind-of rhymes.

Marbles, rocks, lamps, ashtrays, shift knobs, cullet, dinnerware, spoons, forks  wall hangings, hubcaps, hood ornaments, garbage can lids, etc, etc, etc. If you even think that it is oxblood and not sure--- post it, no judgment needed unless requested.

The truth is that glass collectors and many other areas of collecting referred to oxblood as a color without the stipulations that we as marble collectors expect. Most marble collectors love it in any form---tell me if I am wrong. I know that I will love to see what pops up. Please post some marbles with your various items—this is a marble board after all.

Marble-on, and Oxblood-on for sure.

I will start it out with some Akro oxblood dug halves and pieces along with a Vidrio Elephant ashtray. Ok, I know, Vidrio is not oxblood, more like dried blood—let’s see more.

Hello Art,

No uv actually I lit it up from underneath so I'd have to say backlit with normal lighting, I've posted this marble many times and the consensus is being from the French drain, the olive base glass color is very similar to several marbles recovered from there. I knew it was Akro when I got it but the olive base glass threw me. Oxblood is on the surface, I though is was subsurface also but the ox does protrude a bit out from the base glass a bit in a couple areas, other than that a couple microscopic as made dimples, I can't even find a fleabite.  I lit it up so the Akro construction was more visible, I thought it was a super muddy translucent for the longest time !! In hand the olive green color is very apparent when backlit. In regular lighting it appears to be a dark muddy base. I did try U.V. on it, very little to no reaction, maybe the muddy coloring, I haven't the slightest.

I am playing with a new camera and imaging software. I though that it was cool to see that oxblood from the bottom light up with lemonade brightness. These are both my best examples. The bottom of the plate is just as good as the top, it is like it was folded over with great ox on top and bottom, follow the lines of ox throughout the plate to understand what I mean. Oxblood turns into lemonade.

Marble-on!!! and keep the oxblood and liver coming!! I love it all!!

I would dig 20 feet for that one--maybe more; I doubt that you have seen any of the same pattern-- thanks for the humble response.

Marble -on!! And Humility-on!!
