    Veiligglas is/was a Netherlands marble maker. Don't know if they are still in business. Winnie will hopefully show up and give us more info.

    Veiligglas N.V was a glass factory in the Netherlands located in Amsterdam.
    They made safety glass,(veilig glas means safety glass).
    The manufacture of marbles was a by-product and lasted from 1948/49 till 1961.
    They have made Wirepull's and swirls.
    They exported them to many parts of the world,unfortunately they are not easy to find here in the Netherlands.
    Here's a picture of the beautiful Veiligglas marbles.

    Oh my. Would love to have know the person/people who came up with the idea to make these lovely creatures a "by-product". Amazing stuff.
