This is a well made little vase. I haven't seen this pontil mark before. Only 12cm in Height and quite a solid Piece. Any Help Appreciated.

There's a possibility, this may be a perfume bottle missing its stopper. Is the inside of the neck smooth?

It's not smooth or rubbed, it may never have been used, but is the right shape and depth for a stopper. Will head down the perfume route.  Thanks Greg.
