Steph Posted January 12, 2008 Report Share Posted January 12, 2008 (edited) I frequently want to know what the biggest marble from any maker is. Often I vaguely remember reading some reference to the size. But that's a hard thing to search for in search engines! I've just received confirmation at LOM about the biggest Champions floating around. The intentionally large ones. Not the double ingots etc. So for Champs it appears to be 13/16". Brad/slagmarble gave upper estimates on MFC slags, broken down by color here. The largest were brown or green at 1 7/8". Mibster at Akronmarbles has said that MFC made a 3" marble. A glassie, he said. I've heard some size info about Ravenswoods. But I can't remember if I've seen any specifics. What I remember is that usually the discussion seems to move into whether the 1" marbles in Ravenswood packaging were made by them or by Akro. ... ah yes, like here. later note: At Marble Mental, David Chamberlain shows a 7/8" swirl and says that Mike Johnson owns a 15/16" version of the same. even later note: Ron says the 7/8"+ would not have been made for regular production sale. (source) For Jabo, the biggest ones they made on purpose were 1". Ron said, "1 1/4 up are always in the reject bin,usually rough or out of round." For Master, 1" seems to be the top measurement, though Roger/Sword44 hasn't given up hope for more. later note: Ron mentioned here that Jacksons weren't as large as 13/16" in regular production. Perhaps I'll ask him another time what the max size was on those. next update: AMMM says Heaton made marbles up to about 1", then later gave the figure more specifically as 15/16". Pics show some large-ish swirls. See the discussion here: Pretty Aqua. Anyone else have any good size info up your sleeve? CAC? Alley? Akro? Peltier? Marble King? Handmade? Others?
