Don’t Lose Your Marbles:

Glass Marbles for Game-Playing & Collecting


Playing with marbles like these as a youngster was a novelty.

My grandparents kept them with other random toys leftover from their grown children. 

I remember how the small, weighted glass balls felt to touch, and the distinct sound of friction as I rolled and shook them in my cupped hands.

Even the few chipped marbles were never sharp, but instead wore a swirled divot like a proud battle scar.

Clearly, glass marbles are nothing less than beautiful creations with mesmerizing power, whether in motion or perfectly still.
