    A few years ago, a forum discussion talked about one of the most expensive and saught after marbles around.

     

    Since that post, we've watched the statistics grow rapidly on visitors viewing this topic.

     

    The search term: VINTAGE MARBLES comes up with almost 4 million results. Our forum topic appears just a few down from the top. Thus, bringing us plenty of visitors.  

     

    eBay gets the top rank, followed by MarblesGalore.com (a website with resources for marble collectors).

     

    I couldn't find when marbles originated, but found mass production of marbles started in 1884.

     

    I am still amazed at sheer beauty of marbles, the low cost of original purchase and the continuing popularity marbles.

     

    Would be nice to put together an entire respository of marble pictures.
