It should be stated up front that while I dabble in porcelain, I'm not a pottery expert. Your item's clay is fired to a darker red, but its potting reminds me a bit of some Thai pottery I received ages ago from a Thai friend. One piece of it, a small jar, is shown below. It is about 3.5 inches high by 4.5 inches in diameter and 3.5 inches across the mouth rim. It has no lid and is part of a set that came with a small charcoal stove used by Thai fishermen. The friend said it might be antique but wasn't sure. It resembles some apparently older Ayutthaya jars I've seen online, but I think of it as more of a curio than valuable antique from the late 18th century or earlier.
