Anyone know much about marbles? I tend to keep them when I find them bottle digging. Some are quite pretty. The big ones with the flowers and dogs painted on them sell quickly, but these I don't know much about. Any help would be appreciated :O)

Generally these look to date from 1870-1890 or so I would guess. We dig a lot of them in Texas as well. There is definitely some value to them if they are in good condition, particularly the glass swirls. I am sure one of the marble collectors will chime in.

Thank you nhpharm. I didn't even know the date range.
