How about this little fella? At 3 1/2" tall, is it pearl ware with a sponged decoration? What age would you say 18th/19th Century? Any idea of maker and what use? Thanks guys! (Find it a bit annoying that sometimes pictures change orientation at will!)

Been digging... Could be Staffordshire pearlware with sponged decoration c.1830-1850. But what is it? Looks like a dice shaker. Not a mug or beaker... or vase... Doesn't seem to have had a lid. Can't find anything like it. A mystery!

Probably a spill-holder.
