  • $22.00


A spill vase is a small cylindrical vase for containing splints, spills, and tapers for transferring fire, for example to light a candle or pipe from a lit fire.

From the documentary record, they probably date back to the 15th century, though the heyday of specially made vases is the 19th century.
