looking at the rows running left to right.
1 and 2 are Bricks 3 is an Agate
1 is a brick 2 ? 3 and 4 are bricks
1 and 2 are bricks 3 ? 4 and 5 are bricks
1 ? 2 is a brick 3 is Vitro 4 is bennington

Really need better pics with multiple views to determine the others and to tell if the Bricks are Akro or M.F. Christensen. The M.F. Christensen will have a "9" or "6" pattern from being handgathered. Condition is everthing. Small bites take off value. Size is important. How big are the Bricks? Any other colors other than white withe the red oxblood on the bricks( black, green or blue?)

That first marble you show looks agate. Second brown marble is M.F. Christensen Slag . All your Bricks appear to be M. F. Christensen (closed in 1917 I think) and Bricks in sizes over 3/4" are good money. the 3/4" or less bricks (not including 1/2" or less) I see sell 30-75 bucks and the large ones like yours 100-200 or more. Alot depends on pattern and any additional colors (green, black or blue) mentioned earlier and of course condition.

M.F. Christensen and Akro both made Bricks. Yours are all M.F. Christensen. The glass they are made from is Oxblood. Marbles made totally from Oxblood glass are called Bricks. Think it's a collector created name from when the oxblood marble gets beat up from too much play it begins to resemble a piece of brick. I think the real Company name for these marbles is Cornelian.
