I saw a similar one recently. Possibly a Pilgrim Flask, although it has a base, where as pilgrim flasks are designed to be hung over the shoulder by a loop of string. Possibly a moon flask or amphora.
The written mark could date it to the early 20thC, but based on a traditional/earlier style.

thank you for the feedback

fascinating how much work went into each piece

"flask" was the exact term I was looking for and greatly improved my searches

it seems this is a more modern interpretation of symbols from maybe the 14th or 15th century
