This Listing is for a

1-23/32" Antique German Handmade YELLOW LATTICINIO in TINTED GLASS

Item# GM2125
The base glass is tinted green and at the core is a near perfectly designed yellow web. There are alternating bands of translucent red and cobalt on the surface which are well spaced and form a delightful pinwheel when viewed from the ends--the back side of the red bands has a yellow stripe and the blue ones a white stripe.
One of the pontail marks is melted to oblivion and the other is exquisitely ground, fifth image, which helps to estimate the manufacture date to the earliest of glass marble history, circa 1850-1870. Realize that this was the period between the Mexican-American War, the Alamo, and the American Civil War. That's well over 150 years ago.
CONDITION: MINT(-) to NEAR MINT(++) I'm having a hard time grading this marble. There is a nice shine to the surface with just the slightest hint of nearly microscopic wear. I don't see any damage, i.e. collision marks of any kind, or pinpricks, or even scratches. If you will click on the first picture you will see a very large, 800 pixel, image of that view which shows the worst view I could find.

Size 43.60mm or 1.717" at the equator.
