vintage Akro Agate marbles. These recently came from a fine estate and you are looking at them as found. I am not an expert on the vintage marbles, I believe most ofthem are original to the box but there may be several strays. The box measures 3 3/4 square and says Akro Agate Company, Clarksburg, WV.It is intact but shows some wear tothe paper covering and some soiling.The marbles appear unused to me, they are shiny and smooth with no wear.The marblesare made ofrichcolored glass incased in clearglass. Many are multi colored.Twenty of the marbles measure near 1/2 inch. The other five are largergoing up to 3/4 inch in diameter. Georgeous vintage marbles from many years ago. Thanks for looking.

Hi, I have had several people email that sound like they really know their vintage marbles. I am told the marbles are not carnelians but popeyes and other styles. Since I am a layman in regard to collectable marbles, I wanted to post their responses. Thanks so much!
