    Cool Vitro and stuff

    I bought some small stuff, and I got a cool Vitro (and a clay) marble in the lot. It's orange, purple, yellow, light blue, and white. It looks to be in perfect shape.

    I also got a bunch of other cool stuff, which I included in the pic...just because. Notice the tiny metal mice on the right. They have metal balls inside that allow them to roll. They look familiar, but I don't know what they belong to. Also, any idea what the medals/charms with cities and dates are for?

    Those mice are adorable! NEED!

    I don't know what the cities thing is about but I know I'd have fun trying to figure it out. .... if I weren't completely mentally wiped right now.

    Cute mice,they look familiar to me,I think it's part of a vintage cat and mouse game.
    for example "three blind mice",or something like that.

    I found some plastic versions in a cat and mouse game, but I still can't find these. I think that is likely what they were for. The little balls are corroded a bit, so they don't roll very well.

    Looking for some clues for the cities/dates chain. Haven't found anything yet.

    Looks like additions to badges . . . like if you were a Shriner or an Elk or a Mason or an American Legion member or part of some other fraternal order, and got a "city / date bar" for the meetings / conventions etc. you attended . . .

    And maybe your father before you!

    That's kind of what I thought on the bars (for badges). I just don't know what events they are marking. All I can tell is they are all cities in Kentucky.

    Regarding the mice, you can't fight me for them if you can't find me.
