This listing is for a large 19th Century German sulphide marble with hard-to-find reclining cat figure inside. Glass fluoresces under black light and has bottom pontil. Although these marbles were made as children's toys in the late 19th Century, today the larger ones are becoming harder to find and sulphide marbles with rare subject matter in sulphide marbles commanding very high prices. My husband has been collecting marbles for the past 40 years and has finally agreed to let some of them go. This one is overly special if you are a cat lover!
Dimensions: 2 1/8" in diameter. Weighs 8 ounces.
Condition: The marble is in very good condition with a few external bruises but no chips and reflecting only minimal signs of normal use.
