Some of my favorite marbles are in an old California Job Case that I refinished, and covered with glass, and hung on the wall, before I had children, even. (More then 15 years ago...)
I spent hours arranging the colors in the little rectangles, which used to house printer's type. (Do you see the metal handle on the left of the wood cabinet? That is the drawers's handle.) This type tray (called a California job case by those in the know) would have been a long low drawer in a cabinet.
I love the color, shape and sound of marbles, and loved playing with them as a child. I never played the "real" game of marbles as a child. Instead, we would roll them along the floor, knocking down blocks, and sometimes roll them down the stairs.
I also have Jars and Jars of marbles.
I'm guessing my marble display is a little dated now, (And I suppose my teal ragged walls are dated too!), but I have always loved my marble collection. I can no longer find marble jars with gorgeous marbles for under $5.00, though. :)
