i had never seen or heard of 'zia' marbles prior to steph's post. the auction states that they are made of clay. they DO resemble scott's marbles, as kris stated, which is why i like them.

thanks again for posting them.

do they float?

i don't know about those, but the ones my boys made from clay do not float.

(and they could probably shatter a guinea)

Speaking of guineas! Check these out!

p.s. That's a fantasy box of clays from eBay seller Barbitontallucchio. (edit: I just found out that Barbiton Tallucchio is the one who makes the Zia marbles.)

Auction description:

Box of contemporary guineas in replica classic box. The marbles are each individually hand crafted and no two are alike. Marbles are in the 9/16 inch range. Message me with any questions and Thank you for looking.

MAYBE this will be my last Zia post. lol

I can't help it. I really like Barbiton Tallucchio's style! This box has an old metal marble shooter in it, one that looks every bit of its age! (which to me makes it all more fun!)

Auction description:

Box of authentic handmade marbles from the Zia Marble Company. The marbles are in the 7/8 to 1 inch range and are made of glazed clay. This set comes with a vintage marble shooter. Unless I come across another shooter some day, it will be the only set of its kind. Message me with any questions and thanks for looking.

Well, me and my camera had a little talk ... and it decided to cooperate today.

Here they are, on a brief stroll outside their cozy gift box.

How does anyone put all that color together ... whether glass or clay? That takes ingenuity.
