Frigger

Frigger

The English term for an object made by a glassworker on his own time. Most friggers were made from the molten glass that remained in the pot at the end of the day. Such glass was considered to be a worker’s perquisite. American glassworkers referred to friggers as “end-of-day” objects. They are also known as whimsies.
