With that colour clay and the cobalt blue I suspect it's either German (Westerwald area), or American.

That base, and the decoration looks a bit studio to me somehow.

It's not saying studio to me, although it does look handmade. Looks to be a traditional form. Provincial ware.

I originally thought lowlands but those American ones look similar ish

it looks quickly made from cheap clay so I'm guessing it was to carry wine rather than decorative

All - did a bit of hunting and this seems to be described as 'CROCK SALT GLAZE STONEWARE' from the USA, circa 1830 - 1850 with Cobalt blue decoration.

From matching the colour of the glaze and the decoration I think this one possibly originates from the New Jersey / Baltimore area.

There seems to be a healthy trade in their early country domesticwares which they now use the description 'crock' but this was not a term in use at the time.
