Lots of Peppermint swirls, but they are not in mint shape...wonder if they are worth anything anyway?????

    These are early handmade glass marbles called Peppermint Swirls. Their category is Antique Handmade marbles. In their period, a glassmaker would create a cane of glass and the particular size of marble was handgathered and twisted off the cane, creating a pontil or rough spot at the pole of the marble. These have good value today and may fetch as much as $20. each or better depending on condition and size. These were made prior to machinemade marbles in the early 1900's.

    I love peppermint swirls! I've managed to acquire a pretty decent collection, but for some reason I have yet to find even one of those here in Missouri.
