MINT 13/16" Antique German Handmade Green SUBMARINE Shooter

Item# GM1531
The base glass is a transparent green with opposing bands composed of red and white streaks on the surface. Between the surface bands, and just below the surface are lattice ribbons, from whence comes the name SUBMARINE. The basal pontail mark is finely ground and faceted. The other is a faint pig-tail, nearly melted to oblivion helping to date the marble to the mid nineteenth century, circa 1850-1880. This is one of those extremely rare antiques that hardly ever come around. I've been collecting and selling marbles for decades now, and I've only seen very few of these in all that time, and most of them so chewed up and scarred as to be hardly worth collecting. This is the best example I have ever seen, much less owned. At just a hair under 13/16", and in this wonderful, so very near to mint, condition, it is doubly worth possessing the center point in nearly any high-end marble collection
CONDITION: NEAR MINT 8.99 The surface is nice and shiny with no evidence of any play. Looks perfect in hand but close examination with a bright light and lens reveal exceptionally light, microscopic, wear, such as you might expect from storage in a box or jar with other marbles for over 150 years.
