Hi Julie  -  I deliberately didn't show this piece because usually I don't like to confuse threads by adding items, but am breaking my rule and hope that  Greg will forgive me :)  -  see pic attached.

This one is something like 143 mm tall, and the opening 47 mm in diameter.
Looking briefly at the book, the 'perfection' bulb vase seems to have been a shape that emerged in the last quarter of the C19.        From what I can see most of the earlier designs were in some form of the true baluster shape i.e. thicker at the bottom, whereas this heavily shouldered 'perfection' design is the reverse.

Do you have Patricia's book?  Christine is correct, and it does appear in the book. :)

Thanks for sharing that. I don't have any of that "shouldered" shape, as I think of it.

A friend lent me Patricia's book and I have since returned it. Unfortunately I can't really afford to buy my own copy (I guess I spent too much on vases!).

you're welcome to this one  -  it will only go back into a charity shop now that I've finished the photography, and I can't now collect bulb vases  -  Patricia had all my really good ones ;D ;D ;)

send me an off-Board email, with details if you'd like it. :)
