Looks like it might have come with a lid originally. Oriental ginger jar maybe?

Chinese ginger jar. These can date back hundreds of years but are so common they're not worth a lot.

I don't think it's sgraffito. Transfer printed cobalt blue which has oxidised over time to give black lines.

That's why I thought it unusual as I can feel the pattern?

It's provincial Chinese and wouldn't have had a pottery lid. Not seen this pattern before and, as Naomi says they are not expensive even when old, but some have great charm.

If someone wanted to collect inexpensive pottery because they liked it and not as an investment then this is what I would suggest.

Not fully convinced of this one to be honest.

Looks to be made from white earthenware?

Done, cream cleaner and a nailbrush.

It is very heavy for its size Potty so maybe stoneware or earthenware,
Not scraffito as I first thought but raised cobalt.

You're pirting agin Zip, calm down! SP in that skirt has got you going!

There is something about this pot, surely it has to be old, your new pics clearly show the
applied decoration, very nice, never seen anything quite like it.
