|I do plan on selling these|

If I were trying to fool people to think these were from the African trade I would do as little work as possible and make my hole somewhat different than I am, there are ways to make things look old and if I were to do things right I think even most experts would be fooled.
I am wanting to take something wonderful and make it a little more wonderful. I will be signing and dating all of the marbles that I do all of the work on, also on some of the best I may line the holes with fine silver or fine gold. This said I expect that there will be collectors out there that want to own one of my reworks just as much as they want to own a German marble from the African trade.
All my best ............ Danny
P.S. Below is an image of a marble as purchased, it is quite large over 52 mm 2 inch, needless to say it is in pretty bad shape.
