    Colorful closet find

    I found these in a closet at my grandfathers house in Pennsylvania. He found these over the years of searching for antique odds and ends.

    Beautiful! Looks like you have some nice ones in there. Pretty sure most of those cat's eyes are U.S. made. I love finding marbles! I've found 9 in my creeks since Thanksgiving. Looking for bottles and those are nice surprises!

    You seem to know about these things. I can't tell what is what. I don't know if some are agate, porcelain or what. I have a screwy looking marble with a swirl, and a section that looks like it has a hole in it. Do you know what companies some of them were manufactures by?

    I probably know enough to be dangerous! But I've been hunting and collecting marbles for years and I have some really good resource books. I'd be happy to try to help! Post some pix of the ones you're puzzling over...a couple of different views/angles, on a neutral background (a grey t-shirt works great) and good lighting.

    I think I see the one you're referring to with the swirl and hole. It almost looks like a glazed china but would need a closer pic to know better. You have at least two Benningtons in that group of Clay's, a blue and a red shooter. I think I also see some Akro Agate (company name) corkscrews and helmets in the bigger bunch.

    This is a weird one. It has two "holes" or dimples on opposite ends. I have no clue what it is made of.
