AND—Indicates that the records found must contain all the words joined by the AND operator. For example, to find objects that contain the words wizard, oz, and movie, enter wizard AND oz AND movie.

OR—Records found must contain at least one of the words joined by OR. For example, to find objects that contain the word dog or the word puppy, enter dog OR puppy.

AND NOT—Indicates that the records found cannot contain the word that follows the term AND NOT. For example, to find objects that contain the word pets but not the word dogs, enter pets AND NOT dogs.

Solid Core


Handmade glass marbles with swirl patterns required between 4 and 12 individual steps, depending on the number of and pattern of the different swirls, ribbons, or corkscrew strands. All swirl-patterned glass marbles were cut from a long glass rod or cane and then shaped into a ball. Handmade marbles like swirls have a telltale pontil, or a rough spot where the piece of glass was sheared off of the rod.
