Alley Agate Co. Marbles

Alley Agate Company was founded by Lawrence Alley in 1929 in Paden City, West Virginia. Several companies produced swirl marbles in West Virginia, and it can be difficult to tell them apart. Collectors often lump them together under the name West Virgina Swirls. But given Alley's larger production and distribution, more often than not an unidentified West Virginia Swirl marble was likely made by Alley. Their best marbles contained more than two colors, and those with flame swirl patterns are especially desirable. In 1949 Mr. Alley sold his marbleworks and the company was renamed to Marble King, which still produces marbles today.
