Hereís sweet little hand gathered egg yolk with oxblood.

Itís 9/16Ē of an inch. Is this a fairly uncommon size for tis type of marble...yes/no?????

It sure has a lot of action going in both the surface and matrix for such a small sphere:-)

Thanks Dave..Smile

I have no idea ..... Ohio or Germany...... lol

I'll defer to those with more experience with this type of marble...

The more I leran about marbles, the more I learn that I need too learn more about marbles:-)

What a great hobby .... with what seems to be an infinite learning curve!!

I don't think this was rounded out on a machine.. one of the images shows what appears to be a pontil...... You are brave out there on those limbs, braver than eYe .....Smile

Although, it could still be from Ohio.

Thanks,

BT

Seet rare sized German marble IMHO. I believe the ones from the sunken ship pretty much proved the yellow and Ox were from Germany. Peace,Galen

Yeeeeeeoow! Just from looking at the pics, I would never suspect it was so small. Proof of how skillful those early glassmakers were. ... Roger

You are right on two counts Roger... From the pics it's not easy to tell how small it actually is ...... and they were very skilled indeed!!! I have a hard time making marbles smaller than about 3/4"....

Here it is again in a group to give it perspective...

Thanks for pointing this out...
