A spill vase is a small vase for containing splints, spills, and tapers for transferring fire, for example to light a candle or pipe from a lit fire. They date back to the 15th century, though the heyday of specially made vases is the 19th century.

I make them using vintage molds of spaniels, terriers and elephants similar to the original versions.  They are then hand painted and glazed.  These modern day versions can hold a taper candle stick or matches.  Use "strike anywhere" matches.
