***Hello and thank you for checking in on these sales. All proceeds will go to the benefit of the parents of Alan Basinet, aka Marblealan. I have several hundreds of marbles to picture, describe and list so this will be an ongoing process. These marbles will consist of contemporary examples by most artists from his personal collection as well as from his website. There'll be a few vintage machine mades scattered in along with many JABOs from the various runs of the last few years. I'll also be listing a few pieces of other collectable glass that Alan had aquired through the years. I'm happy to answer any and all questions BUT please be aware that I'm not a contemporary marble collector. ******************
This sale is for afantastic Ro Purser murrini cane-cut sphere. This spectacular marble features hundreds of individual murrini canes on a large 2.53 inch marble. This marble is filled with color and there are bunches of different pictures scattered amongst the cane pieces. Everything from celestial bodies, dogs, cats, crabs, several different fishes, body parts, musical instruments, geometric patterns, airplanes! The list goes on and on! There's something new to look at every time you pick it up!! This marble / sphere does have a few as made issues. First there is a short finger nail shaped crease at the basal pontil that didn't get polished out and there are a few tiny lines that go around the marble that you can only see well under magnification.Oh and 1 short scratch that might or might not beas made. The last 4 photos show all of the surface problems. Another example of this marble is pictured on page 30,in the wonderful book ' The Encyclopedia of Modern Marbles, Spheres and Orbs'.
