Original Christensen Agate Guinea Marble 5/8" No Res For Sale
You are purchasing an Original Christensen Agate Guinea Marble, made by the Christensen Agate Company (1925-1933). Christensen Agate was an Ohio-based company which
had no connection with the earlier M.F. Christensen & Son Company. This Guinea is approx 5/8" in diameter and in Excellent condition with only the slightest flea bites as made, HOWEVER grading is very subjective and you should evaluate the marble according to your own standards. If you look carefully at the third photo posted you will notice a minute pinprick imperfection in the light blue glass band which is as made. There are other such minute imperfections present, however there are no "chips" present. This marble came from a pouch of 25 found in an attic in Central Pennsylvania.Christensen Agate made the "Guinea" marble, a striking multicolor
marble that is one of the most expensive and desirable of all
machine-made marbles. The name is purportedly derived from the similar
coloration of Guinea Hens. Genuine CA guinea marbles have one or two
machine “cut lines” that are not found on modern handmade guineas. Cut
lines are where the molten glass was cut in the machine, the reformed
and rolled back to a sphere. They look like seams on the marble, and are
sometimes raised.I guarantee this Christensen Agate Cobalt Marble to be an original 1925-1933 machine made marble and not a reproduction. See Photo.
This is a sale, thus the highest buyer will receive the marble as pictured. . Pennsylvania residents add 6% sales tax.
