Bennington Marbles in Original Box

This was something I had not seen before: an original box of Bennington stoneware marbles from Germany. As a rule, vintage marbles in their original boxes are highly prized, though these humble Benningtons in their even more humble box won't bring the big prices boxed glass marbles do.

    I have 2 boxes of these and one box of swirls ( 100 of same cane) I also was wondering if there was much value to them. I bought the box of German Swirls for $400.00 10 the 1970’s.

    I expect a box like this these days full of brown or blue benningtons might go for $100, more if they are fancy benningtons. The swirls may go for much more depending upon style, size and condition. It’s hard to predict. Someone very active in higher end marble auctions like Bob Block over at http://www.blocksite.com/ would have a good idea.
