Discussion of End-of-day Glass:
"End of day" glass was any item made by the glassworkers in their own time at the end of the day using up the remaining molten glass in the pots. It therefore tended to be a mixture of all sorts of colours. Another name for the same kind of item was a "frigger". Sometimes these were fun items, like walking sticks or animals made of glass. Sometimes they were items for the glassworkers own home; and sometimes they were for sale.

In some parts of Britain (Nailsea and Stourbridge for example) the glassworkers made friggers in their own time on Saturday's and displayed them in a parade on the Sunday.

However, over the years the name "end of day" glass has been applied to any glass item which has colours "marvered in", that is specks of coloured glass that have been laid out on a table or "marver" and rolled into the hot glass, then melted in, like the item on the left. The names "spatter glass" or "spangle glass" or "Nailsea glass" are applied to glass that has specks of colour marvered into the hot glass and these kinds of glass are often called "end-of-day glass".

The name has also been applied to paperweights containing scrambled pieces of cane.

The term has been misapplied to slag glass, or opaque glass that has a different colour added to the hot molten glass. It could be said that the term "end-of-day" glass is not very informative because it covers such a wide range of possibilites.
