The white lines on this blue glass vessel were added with a marver (a stone or iron implement), which was used in a rotating motion to integrate the white onto the blown blue surface. Adopted from Roman glassmaking techniques, this method was popular in Egypt and Syria from the seventh to the fourteenth century.
