Archaeological Evidence for Glassworking, Guidelines for Recovering, Analysing and Interpreting Evidence, published by Historic England in 2018, defines marver as: ‘A flat surface, of stone or metal, on which the glassworker rolls or presses the glass to help shape it.’

Marvered decoration is: ‘Glass decoration, such as trails or blobs in different colours, that are flush with the surface of the glass; the decoration is pushed into the glass while it is hot using the surface of the marver.’
