yellow & white = lemonade
purple & yellow = bumblebees
blue & yellow = cub scout
there's a transparent swirl down near the bottom, that tumbling may help. Also 2 red bloodies and a red corkscrew.

Get right to the best one. Vitro on the left. Now, that beauty on the right I needs some better pics of. It's handgathered (transitional probably?) looks to have Oxblood running thru it. Any pontil? Any blue or greens in this marble? Size?

I bet it's got a Melted pontil or a faceted type. Both are ver hard to see if there is any surface wear. I'd have to see two very close south pole shots. That is opposite the white "9". Even with the pops it is a very good marble. Selling it?

Not sure about selling that one...what's it called anyway?

Figures I'd buy a marble book with errors... [:@]


MIKE.....jump right in...after all now we have a place.[:D]

Depends on pontil type and any other colors in that marble. I'm getting a real German vibe off it from what I see.

Road Dog

Probably a German Transitional with Oxblood.

whiskeyman
07-08-2010, 09:42 AM
Thanks for that info.

I'm seeing Peeps with queries about how to ID...are they talking company that made the marble, OR the name collectors have given the marble...ie..." cub scout"...OR the type of marble... ?
Kinda confuzzling to say the least...[8|]

Also, another thing: taking pix. Just where on a particular marble do you "focus" your eyes...in order to both name & take pix?? I noted lots of yours were on the "9" portion of a marble. And some were on the fold....

With German Transitionals I'm not aware of any Company Names. There are Company Names as well as Collector Names. Folks recognize the Company Names mostly like .......Akro Agate (company) Corkscrew (type) Prize Name (company name).
With Amercan Transitionals you have Navarre, Barberton ( both James Leighton) and really M.F. Chrisatensens Slags are transional too though nott usually called that.
Taking pics to I.D. a Marble you shoot the poles (or seams) and shoot to sides to establish a glass pattern.

With Handgathereds if you are only showing one pic of them this is the best angle to show. Kinda like some folks having a better side for picture taking.

RoadDog...most informative.[:)] Thanks. I'll practice taking pix based on that.


Your marbles and those in books,etc..all appear "shiny"...is there something you do or are they actually that gleaming?
Most of mine are dug...ie...dull-looking - thus not expected to appear "mint."

Road Dog

They are just that gleaming. With Slags sometimes I combine the sun and a flash (helps show the innards sometimes)and it makes the shine even more so.

Looks like an MFC to me....

Hey Brian, we would appreciate any bits of info on M.F. Christensen. I know you have done some excavation and such there. We were discussing the whole Red Slag / Cornelian/ Oxblood thing over at LOM and were wondering about any glass types or colors found at the site.

Could very well be an MFC Brian. That's why I was curious about a base color.

I think my favs are the clay and Bennington marbles. Great pictures. The black and yellow ones are something you don't see every day. They look like they should be called "Honey Bees".
