Hi Clam, nice marbles! I really like all the painted chinas plus the top three handmade glass marbles that are arrowed.

Congrats on your finds and thank you for sharing them with us. Good luck finding more items for your collection. Paul

Very interesting. Can't imagine finding anything like that around here.

Those Chinese ones are especially nice. Items like that sell on Ebay?

The painted chinas do sell on ebay but not for big money, the high dollar collectors will not drop big money on ebay they just do not trust it. Take for example the chinas I have pictured here if I were to put them on ebay I feel that they would sell for about $150 to $225 but if I took the same marbles to a marble show where they could put their hands on them I would have no problem selling them for $300 to $450 and maybe higher if a bidding war started.
