The well to do might have been more likely to show off their safety matches by then. Pressed glass was for the middle class masses.

Stu / Stuart? — I'm with Christine on this.   Conspicuous consumption was the order of the day for both the middle and upper classes.

For instance Taylor's stoneware mustard pots (on which there was a ¼d or ½d deposit) are most easily found today in the old rubbish dumps of the well-to-do, as servants were forbidden to take them back for the deposit money.   You ran your life according to the maxim "What would the neighbours say?", or, possibly, "What would the congregation say?" or both.

You know, it's always a pleasure to be put right whilst being given the opportunity to learn!

Thanks both.

(Who is happy with his vase being a vase for vase's sake).

So... just those other two spill vases now...  (taps fingers on table...)

Just for reference, this vase is shown in the colour photo section of Jenny Thompson's book*, The Identification of English Pressed Glass 1842-1908 - picture page 88, description on page 80 says they are "Edward Moore, c1880, unmarked but shown in the Moore pattern book", and described by Thompson as "flower vases" .

* Book is a very useful reference source for early pressed glass.
Cheers! Anne, da tekniqual wizzerd

Thanks Anne - that settles it's intended purpose for me.  I have been offered that book for £20 but see that it's cheaper on Amazon, so will get it there.  Thanks for the tip.
