Unusual function


Interesting item has anyone heard of these before, might be a useful one to remember for future puzzles.

Mmm interesting!  For some reason it seems odd the flower holder would have been blue though...isn't that a touch ostentatious for the period? seems feasible though.  <makes mental note for future>

These are well known here in the US and are known as car vases and were made from the victorian era until the 1930s. This one appears to be pressed glass from the EAPG era. Terry

Thanks Terry

light carriage; pulled by a single horse
a sedan that has no roof over the driver's seat

Invented by Henry Brougham, 1st Baron Brougham and Vaux, Lord Chancellor of Great Britain, a brougham was a four-wheeled horse-drawn carriage of the 1800s. It had a low body with a box seat in front for the drive. In back was seating for two or four with two doors.

I didn't know this

There are some "car vases" known in Carnival Glass too.

A variation of this shape (in fact I believe it could be dual purpose) had a very pointed end and was intended to be used in cemeteries at the graveside (where it could be driven into the soft ground).
