MINT 13/16" Antique German Handmade COBALT MICA CLEARIE

Item# GM1908
Here's a big old COBALT CLEARIE that is just loaded with medium-large mica flakes all the way around and just below the surface. The color, size, and condition of these are becomming extremely difficult to find. The unfinished pontail marks reveal that the marble was made in Germany in the During the late Victorian period, circa 1880-1910. These brilliantly colorful marbles are part of a group that are sometimes called by collectors: ENGLISH STYLE, probably they were, for the most part, produced for the British game board market that was very popular at the time. This large size would be rare as they wouldn't fit on most of the boards.
CONDITION: MINT 9.6 The surface is as wet and shiny as the day it was made. I can only find some tiny as-mades that are easily visible in the first and enlarged pictures.
