Your item is a typical Japanese bulb-shaped porcelain
sake bottle, called Tokkuri. Its is used primarily to
heat sake in hot bath.
The inscription on the Tokkuri,
たね蒔く おきゃくが むせ來る
Tanemaku o-kyaku ga musekuru
The client who sows seeds will choke

With regards,
I.Nagy

Thank you very, very much for your input I.Nagy.
I really appreciate it.
So, I guess its a modern sake bottle and not an old one.
Kind regards,
Charlie
