      marbles vintage

      Hi all - Looking for some help- Wife recently lost her aunt and while cleaning out the house we found a box of old marbles in the basement next to the old coal burning furnance- They were covered with coal dust- Asking the family we learned that they were probably my wife's fathers or grandfathers when they were young- No one in the family ever remembers seeing them - We asked her brother as he would have been the most probable to have seen them if they were her fathers- He does not ever remember seeing them- Mixed in with the marbles were a number of clay marbles which I was able to look up and found they were produced from the late 1800's to around 1905.

       

      If they were her fathers or grandfgathers they would be quite old- Her Grandfather would be around 112 today- her father would be around 90

      I have attached some pictures of a few of the marbles ( I have around 100 or so) If anyone can tell me what make they are- The names of the marbles - Do they have any value etc- It would be greatly appreciated

      Thanks

      Steve & Renee
