    I have no clue about these & would appreciate any help. I know about things, like little vases that Akro Agate made, but nothing about their marbles, or anyone else's for that matter.

    Initially would pick some up for use in vases. Did look up how to play marbles & the larger marbles are the "shooters," I guess. Know there are some clear, larger ones, have no idea about their age. A green marble is not as large as the clear ones, but is larger than the regular marbles. Maybe some of the solid ones were from Chinese Checkers.

    Any help is appreciated. Wonder how old some of them might be & who may have made them.

      Sorry i don't have information for you, but some have said, I "lost my marbles" a long time ago.

      I can tell you there is a huge market for marbles and a lot of sites out there to help you locate what you have. Just google "vintage marbles" without the quotes and you will find some very informative sites. That clear shooter is very cool and I'm pretty sure, not an easy one to find. The hand blown marbles are I believe worth the most and they are not perfectly round. Be prepared to do a lot of work finding yours, it can get a bit overwhelming...not trying to be negative, I've done the same before and gave up, but that's just because I didn't have that kind of time.
