I need to know what I'm sitting on.

Well, Grandma had a lot of marbles from Mexico.

There may be a few vintage USA made in that bunch as well, no real big money marbles but there is one yellow and blue one that may be an Akro Agate corkscrew in the second set of images.

I suggest getting the last images out of the bag and getting some images of them for evaulation.

Marble--On!!!

All marbles always deserve "further inspection" .   That said, I think some of your painted chinas are actually mill balls and "further inspection" will reveal that they are decorated with felt pens. They were made to deceive and many people were fooled by them. They seem to have reacched the secondary market. Most were sold to antiques dealers originally. This is a photo I saved that was posted when I had a question about them. Thanks

There's a nice mix of foreign and US marbles in the bunch, I see several patches that might be Akro, and a couple of possible Peltier Rainbos (or Marble King Rainbows). Always good to post a few from different angles to have people help with the identification.  Maybe keep it down to four marbles for each post which makes it easier to manage as people look at them. I'm curious as to what you have there!

Thanks Bruce, I knew someone would come through on these.

Sorry Billy, Grandmas marbles are not all that good. I do like the corkscrew! No great value in this bunch.

Bruce just confirmed what my instincts were on these clay ones. You did come to the right place to get what you asked for.

Sometimes the truth hurts but facts are facts, and I am all in with what Bruce has to say.

Great images by the way.

Marble--On!!!
