I know my place

By helenlinda
Many thanks to Eric for his User Award - was thrilled to bits.
Last night I got to thinking about class and .................and who better to refer to on this subject, than the fantastic sketch with John Cleese, Ronnie Barker and Ronnie Corbett.
So here are the bottles in a completely different context tonight. The image is not perfect, but I'm going loopy trying to get the bottles to behave - so here, before I smash a few of them is my rendering of "I know my place"
Thanks for looking,
................and Large is essential !!!

Brian, thanks for your comment - I don't quite follow what else I can do - he's leaning away with his head tilted in order to look up - if he leans the other way, his head will be facing away from the tall bottle.............but maybe I've missed something obvious.

A lovely "bottle" image so well executed. I remember the sketch so well. I think the looking up bottle is OK.

Perhaps I have misread your interpretation Helen - I assumed in the 1st set one is pointing down to the middle class one. So on the 2nd set I assumed the middle one should be pointing towards the upper class who he looks up to.
I think it's a directional pointing/looking thing.Smile down to personal perception.

I remember the sketch too Helen !! Now to really confuse things,I reckon the very last small bottle in the third set,should be looking up to the other two bottles there.The working class looking up to the middle class and the upper class. You would then have the large,medium and small bottle,all leaning in the same direction !!

Thanks for these suggestions - it is indeed a matter of personal interpretation Mick when he says I know my place, he always looks straight ahead, which is why I opted for the forward look.
Brian I think it is the tilt of the hat that Ronnie Barker wears that my middle set resembles - again I've tried to follow the opening sentences in the sketch as carefully as I can. A quick look at the link and you will see what I mean.

I think everyone interprets the actual sketch in their own way. I don't remember it in detail, but certainly in general. An excellent way of illustrating it here.

Yes, must be viewed large, Helen! I remember this TV sketch from many years ago, and this is an excellent interpretation of it. Well done - certainly put a smile on my face!

P.S. The bottles are looking the right way as you've portraited them!
