This is a Denby Majolica tobacco jar, c1920s.

Langley Mill also made jars with the same Crown mark, but has never
been positively id'd, but one assumes it must have been for some
government department or other.

I see these are called majolica a lot, but I don't see the white underglaze?

Well no, it is not "Majolica" in the traditional sense, but that is what Denby decided
to call that particular range of art-pottery.

You can see my examples here:
