Nice collection Rhona! I have always liked marbles. I guess the two that glow are kind of like Vaseline glass?

Outstanding Rhona, My wife is the marble collector in our family. She says all my marbles are cracked so I don't have to worry about them glowing.[sm=lol.gif]

Most of Akro's stuff dates from 1920 to 1950.
