Bottle, Box, Vase. These containers symbolize the body of the woman and female sexuality, at least in men’s dreams.
The male body and male sexuality is seldom, if ever, represented by a vase.
If a container symbolizes male sexuality, it appears in the shape of a barrel or bottle.
For men and woman alike, though, a vase may represent the innermost part of the person in the sense of the unconscious. But here the image usually appears in the form of a box (Pandora’s Box) or a treasure chest.
What is inside the container is important (the spirit in the Bottle—the genie). Ever since Sigmund Freud, containers have been seen as referring to sexuality; if the container is empty, impotence. Pouring liquid from a container or removing a cork from a bottle is, according to classical psychoanalysis, usually a symbol for intercourse.... Little Giant Encyclopedia
Dreams of a container symbolize that you are being nurtured, held, and protected.
If the container is empty, then you are dealing with issues of lack or loss.
If the container is full, then you are feeling abundant and complete. Consider the contents for more insight into the significance of this dream. Also, a container can be a nurturing space that holds you while you develop to a certain level.

Boxes, drawers, wardrobes and other storage containers in dreams may relate to feelings of safety, security and containment. They may also suggest that you are storing too much emotional baggage and need to lighten your load. An empty container may suggest that you are in need of emotional support or fulfillment.
If a dream container is well organized with room to spare, you may be feeling comfortable in the way you organize your life. If, however, the box is disorganized and overcrowded with items, this can symbolize a sense of being overburdened with daily tasks or with emotions. It is worth remembering whether any items were offloaded in order to make the box easier to use.... The Element Encyclopedia

The defences we use, such as pnde, beliefs, anger, to protect ourselves from deeply feeling the impact of the world, relationships, love, anxiety or pain. These are often felt as traps or restraints, even though they are parts of our own personality.
For instance one may feel trapped by one’s own feelings of dependence upon family.
Example: ‘1 am trapped in a bricked room with no way out and I shout for somebody to help me. Then either a big bird or a creature with long arms tries to catch me, and I scream’ (Karen S). Karen had previously lost a baby, been divorced, had an unsatisfying relationship with a man. She feels trapped by the defences she has herself built ‘brick by brick’, but is frightened of the opportunity of change represented by the bird. What encloses or traps us in our dream gives a clue to what constrains us in waking.
Example: ‘As I go through a tunnel it either gets smaller so I can’t get through, or it goes on so far there is no end to it. I am trapped and terrified’ (Don M).
