Beautiful find! It looks to me like a Chinese ginger pot. Some strange architecture on that building but otherwise looks just like the ginger pots that show up in Western Canada.

Thank you for the information , it was found here in Ireland about 20 years ago in Dublin.

Hi Liam,

As CanadianBottles says, generally known as ginger jars.
They are quite a common find in UK tips from the late 19th to early 20th centuries.
The quality varies from good pictorial ones such as yours to very crude.
-
I have often asked my self did we really consume that much ginger domestically?
-
I personally think certainly some could have contained other products such
as tea, that would go someway to explaining the numbers found.
