Helix China ?


Recommended Posts

Found a nice group of these clay marbles 

Could they be the same as on a picture i found i one of the books i have ?

Seem a little different 

Help appreciated

I agree - a helix would be a single continuous line spiraling around the marble - it should have two obvious ends.

Also, the book is referring to glazed China (ceramic/porcelain) marbles. The ones you're showing may also be Chinas but they are unglazed.

There are a couple that look like they might fit the helix idea, but it could also be wear/age that makes some of the bands look incomplete. Specifically the second image, bottom right corner.
