Handmade Marbles

By definition, a handmade marble is a marble that was individually made by a craftsman. Non-glass Handmade marbles have existed for almost as long as there have been children. During primitive and medieval times, these were rounded stones or clay marbles and command a high price today. They lack eye appeal and come in a very limited number of colors and styles, so the supply far outstrips demand. The handmade marbles sought after by today’s collectors are those that were produced in Germany during the second half of the nineteenth century and the first two decades of the twentieth century.

All handmade glass marbles have at least one pontil. This is the rough spot at the bottom pole of the marble where it was sheared off its glass cane or a punty.

Handmade marbles are generally classified as either cane-cut (sometimes called rod-cut) or as single-gather. Almost all handmade marbles are cane-cut marbles. This type of marble starts as a cane of glass that contains the design of the marble. The end of the cane is rounded, and then the partially completed sphere is sheared off the end of the cane and is rounded. Single-gather marbles, on the other hand, are produced one at a time on the end of a punty. Handmade marbles can be further classified by type and/or coloring of the design.

The production of handmade marbles is very labor-intensive. As a result, far fewer handmade marbles exist than machine-made marbles thereby increasing their value.
