Welcome to the forum, Julian.

My first thought was that it is a salt shaker or pepperette without its lid, but it's probably a bit on the large size for that given the dimensions you quote. But too small for a preserve jar (again without a lid). I shall have to have a think....

Yes this is what I thought, I have looked at a lot of silver pepperette's on the web and they are all a lot smaller than this and usually half the size and this is why I find it odd. There is absolutely no evidence in the way of wear or marks that there was ever any type of lid to it. I thought it may be a small posy vase but again most have a lit with holes to hold the flowers. Hope somebody may know something more....

I'll throw my hat hat into the ring with a suggestion of a bar-top holder for angostura bitters. The bottles at the time were extremely small.
Just an idea.
Regards
John
