I found these two at our local goodwill store for .99 cents each. There's a 3rd one there that is the same size as the smaller one and its kinda like a large pearl. Well anyways here's the 2 chunks of glass in question. Any help will be appreciated. Swiz

Thanx Road Dog. I figured they was newer. I bought them for my shelf and didn't think they were anything super valuable. What were these made for anyways? Swiz

Not sure Swiz. Like marbles of the last 150 years or so they have made some real bigguns. Probably for display. Those real large ones are kinda impractical for games kids played. Atleast that I'm aware of.

I'm gonna try to get a tree to grow around it and see if I can make a cane or staff of some sort. it'll probably take a good 5 years or so. Have to wait and see if it works or not. I have to agree that they are most likely for decorations. Probably started to make them around the same time that people started to actually collect marbles. Swiz
