    can YOU tell me?

    this is one of three other marbles that i am trying to name/date....
    the color is like a pastel foam greenish blue with tiny bubbles through out. it is roughly 1.5 inches and has one minor-minor-minor-minor 'ding' on the surface.

    i have found a picture that i can date from the late 50's that shows these marbles along with about a half dozen others. as of yet my dear old mom wont let me have it to get a scan... but i am gonna keep on working on her!

    my goal is to sell it but i have to tell you all that i am really getting kind of 'hooked' on learning about these pretty marbles!

    more pictures... the pink marble is a bit larger than the other two... closer to 1.75 inches. it also has a very tiny ding on the surface.

    RE: can YOU tell me?

    this marble is the smallest of the three at about 1.25 inches. it is not a perfect round shape either. it has a few scratches that i feel but really cant see. the blue swirls have a bit of white in them....
    any ideas?

    My first thought is that these are all contemporary marbles - newer handmades (last 20 years or newer). However, I am not a handmade collector (old or new).

    I agree with Al, these are contemporary marbles.
    Handmade, but not antiques.
