I'm not entirely sure it looks to me like some kind of a makeup application container turn of the century, the only thing I've scene some what like it was the crock toothpaste container from the mid 1870s, but I believe they were smaller

Looks like a crucible of some sort to me - something that could have been heated in a fire.

I've found some pretty similar stoneware jars in a dump full of British food bottles. Not sure what they contained but I'm assuming it was some sort of spread. I'm not sure about it being a crucible because of the groove around the lip, never seen a crucible that had one of those and I've seen plenty of stoneware jars that did.
