Steph Posted July 25, 2007 Report Share Posted July 25, 2007 No new marble pix to add yet. But here's a pair of Fortune Telling Balls. As noted in Alan's auction description below, the amber is original to the box. Auction description: This lot, A MARBLE CONSIGNMENT, consists of Czechoslovakian "Fortune Telling Ball" box (ca. 1930s). It has approximate dimensions of 2-19/32" (66 mm) by 2-19/32" (66 mm) x 1-1/4" (32 mm) and is in great condition with just some minor wear and a very small amount of crushing on one corner. It contains two 32-sided dice which are numbered 1-32, as well as "0" and "00" (the amber die is original to the box, and the clear one is just a thrown-in bonus). The original instructions are included, giving 30 different answers to one's fortune in the areas of love, luck, finance, marriage, surprise, and home; be warned, though...some of the answers are quite negative! By the way, for actual Czech marbles you can find some links here, Original Packaging and Marbles From Outside The U. S.. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
