It looks like a late 19thC commercially made stoneware bottle of the type used to hold beer or ink or similar. The mark on the side may be from a piece of wadding or another bottle touching it in the kiln. I don’t think it’s a maker’s stamp.
In the U.K. it would have been made by one of the companies like Royal Doulton and Bourne Denby. I don’t know who their contemporaries were in Canada & North America

Yes. It does appear to be similar to those jars. Many items came to Canada from England during that period. Unfortunately no marks. Thank you

Always helps to have a photo of the base, even if there are no marks

Cheers. It doesn’t strike me as being British in origin but others will know better than me
