It would depend on the date it was made.
I believe Tiger was developed/emerged from the ribbons inside these.
The colourway did not get renamed Marble until after Said took over, and I tend to see the later duller  and flatter executions as being Marble, and the early ones with stronger, brighter and more deeply set colours as being Tiger.
I would not ever describe a cut-ice with ribbons as Tiger or Marble; It's a cut ice.

It only becomes Tiger (or Marble) when the ribbons have been flattened on a gather. Marble is flattened much more than Tiger.
