Can anyone help identify the age of this piece? And use?

I do a lot of Scuba Diving locally and found some amazing pieces this past summer. Can’t seem to find much about this piece though. Old stoneware? Possible age?!

Looks like a turn of the 20th century Chinese pot to me. Not sure what exactly these contained but they were ubiquitous in BC. Did you find it on the west coast?

Looks like a early 1890s food preservative jar jar really nice looking though looks like it's been hanging tools so you definitely know it's old does have the wrinkles inside the jug the wrinkles would be the fingers that was used to make it on the inside should be able to see it I'm sure it's got it very nice piece so I like it

I've got to agree with "CanadianBottles" . We find soy and various other similar pots and small jugs here in the BC Interior as well (placer & hard rock mining sites). Food container - Bean Curd?
