Sulphide Marbles

Sulphides, or figure marbles, are large translucent marbles manufactured in Germany from the mid-19th century up until the 1930s. Usually 1 1/2" or more in size, they always feature a figure encased in the center, which early collectors mistakenly thought was made from sulfur. In fact these figures are made from porcelain and are usually animals but the rarer ones include people or numbers or other objects. No one knows exactly how many different figures or objects were made, but hundreds are known to exist.

On average sulphide marbles sell for about $215 but rare sulphides featuring painted people or extremely rare objects can easily sell for more than $2,000.
