Hey Guys,
Anyone have any thoughts to what kind of price range this would be in?? Mostly has some small flea bites here and there, no dings or bruises. Thanks.
Randy

Hey rando,

Very nice & swirly guy. What is the diameter? Is that a "splat" sticker? It's really throwing me for a loop.

Would'ya call it a carpet ball?

It's about 3" and all glass, no splat sticker;>!

That has to be one of the biggest lobed onionskins I have ever seen. If it were me I would put that boy in Morphys marble auction. A couple of years ago that marbles would have brought thousands nowadays I would think it would still bring over a thousand....Greg

Really would not be a good paperweight if it kept rolling off the papers.....12 lobed onionskin that big is a one rare piece of glass, all of the marbles I have that are big like that are polished smooth on the pontils.

The guy i got this from has a collection of them he got from his mom (he is in his late 60's), he wants to sell them. I wondered about the polished poles also. But he is looking for a number, because he doesn't know what they are worth (he says he has more like this in different designs). I am going to see the rest of them sunday after the show. I do know that his family comes from a small town, but were very well to do. He, from what i gather is kinda the black sheep, he is into antiques and is no dummy, we shall see.
