It might be an old piece, or might be a Native American or Mexican Puablo pottery. The carving looks vaguely Peruvian.
I've come across early 20th century pieces made in that coloured marbled clay as well as modern pieces by studio potters. You could check out early Ozark pottery - http://www.arkansaspottery.com/nnn.html
You may get more info if you took it to your local museum.

The suggestion its Italian could refer to carved pieces of Deruta pottery, but it's not that. The clay and the carving doesn't look European.
More likely to be American.
