I don't know if this is Chinese or Japanese or neither?

It looks like it was made in the last 100 years and is missing it's bamboo handle - very thinly potted.

Any clues?

Japanese Banko five faces teapot c.19thC
May have had a simple wire handle, but even so, you can still buy replacement bamboo handles

I’ll move this to ID My Pottery. All the other pottery groups are for identified pieces and used for reference. I’ll move it back if & when it’s IDed.

Unless it can hold a sponge in the lid, I don't think it's a tobacco jar.
