Is this a Wedgewood Top HAT?

I wonder if anyone can tell me if this is a Wedgewood top hat? It is 4" tall and 6" in diameter. Thanks

Yes the top is flat and the sides are parrallel. I found this picture of a Wedgwood top hat which looks the same but it gives no dimensions. http://ronaldstennettwillson.com/Vases%20Top%20hat.html
