Anything Round !


Recommended Posts

Some "marble related" pinback characters, most from "Syndicated Press Comics"  made by Kellogs in the 40's, 95% of these are Peltier comic marble related, the Superman is Akro related as well.

A keepsake pinback from my  Childhood hometown (7 miles away) back then the main event was beer pitcher races between bars w/ everyone on the sidewalk cheering the participants on "if they made it to the finish"  there's a reason it was called  "Rainier Daze"

I have nearly the twin to yours William ,only difference is 3 dolphins instead of 2. Got it from a dear Friend that lives at the coast near Seaside Ore. Says Cannon Beach which is another 50 miles down the3 coast or so ?? Almost 4" so a big piece of glass. Sorry for the blur, another freehand attempt, I guess I'll never learn ??

Think I picked mine up at a second hand store for like a buck. I like the brighter, vibrant color in yours. Kinda wish mine didn't have the frosted glass, but it is cool looking into the little window 😊

This is really interesting, Hansel - not sure I've ever seen such an application on a glass marble - a low temperature fire for decoration?

Any idea what this was made for?

My guess is rolling.

Sorry, I couldn't stop myself. 🙂

There's a hard glossy coating  with an interesting mosaic design on what seems to be a 5/8" glass marble.
