It's definitely not pressed though. You can't press anything that's narrower at the top than at the bottom because you can't get the plunger out. Occasionally pressed glass is hand-shaped while hot to turn the top in, but this is mould blown.

I've noticed a few times lately that people have used the word pressed for something that is molded without being pressed. I had never thought about narrow necks. Good point.

Thanks for the technical advice. I appreciate everything I'm told as I'm a complete novice, if a little cocky!
