Vase you might pick up to bring home (3)


I believe the answer is:


'vase' is the definition.
(both can mean a container)

'you might pick up to bring home' is the wordplay.
'you might pick up' indicates a 'sounds like' (homophone) clue.
'to bring home' becomes 'earn' (as in bringing home a wage).
'earn' is a homophone of 'URN'.

(Other definitions for urn that I've seen before include "Vessel for making hot drinks" , "Ossuary" , "A vase, as for holding human ashes" , "Container for tea or ashes" , "Without cost; last word of Tempest" .)

I've seen this clue in The Times.
