Darling set of 64 French antique clay marbles in linen back. For those of you that think I have lost my marbles... I found them. In another box from France. They are made of clay which is giving my age away (late 1800’s) but did you know that many people think that the more perfect looking marbles are worth more? This is not necessarily the case. While no one wants an antique marble that has been destroyed, no one wants a so-called antique that looks perfect either. If an antique looks perfect, it probably isn't an antique at all. These flaws actually add character and value to a marble because they prove that the marble was handmade. A marble that looks like it just came off of an assembly line is most likely a new creation. If these marbles could talk I wonder what they would say?
