Obviously the facetiousness of my response was not evident.  The number of "Small vases" I have seen that were obviously perfumes originally is almost apocryphal infinite it seems.

It's me being slow, Ross.
I have lost the ability to multi-task - or think about more than one wee thing at a time.  :ooh:

facetiousness is beyond me - far too clever!

Is the inside of the neck of the 'vase' ground or smooth?

Perfume bottle can be a nominal term for a small decorative bottle with a stopper, not necessarily something to be used.

Just that it might look like a perfume bottle if it has a stopper, but that doesn't mean you're actually supposed to use it.
