The glass marble collection has been in the family for generations.
But in the past couple of decades, there has been an explosion in the number of marbles sold and the quality of them.
Some have been used in weddings, and some are on display in museum collections and museums.
It has been said that it was the ‘glass marbles’ that were the spark that lit the fireworks in 1963, when President John F. Kennedy declared a national holiday to honor the marbles.
What is the history of the glass marbled collection?
The glass marbling collection was established in the early 20th century, when the family was selling marbles for decorative purposes.
“The marbles were sold to the public at the local shops and the collectors collected them,” said Richard Smith, a historian who wrote a book on the collection.
Since then, the collection has grown in size, with more than 150 marbles in the collection and more than 300 more that were never sold.
In its current form, the marbled collections were sold at auction in the 1960s, but they were later donated to the Smithsonian Institution.
They were auctioned off in 2008 at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History in Washington.
The marbled sculptures and other artifacts were sold by the Smithsonian in a separate auction for a reported $2 million.
After the sale, the Smithsonian decided to donate them to the Marbles of America, a charity that helps preserve and protect marbles and other cultural treasures in the United States.
There are no specific plans for the collection to be sold, but the organization has put the pieces on display at museums.
