Keith — Sowerby 2505 range.   If 8" it was the L2505 Celery Vase — if 6" the S2505 Celery Vase.   "L" and "S" for Large and Small.   Subsequently there were two smaller sizes, the next one down was called "2505 Posy Vase", not abbreviated as far as we know, and a toothpick-sized titch which we don't know the name for.
