Again lovely chocolatey colours lol.  Did a little research and something popped up very similar listed on fleabay as a Chinese egg jar of around 1655 BUT I am pretty sure this is a little younger lol

Definitely made after 5pm!!!

I think it is late 20th century or even more recent.

I think I've seen these for sale in the shops, so probably still making them.

They used to salt eggs to preserve them and I imagine that was what they were originally for.
