I think this is called a Madara Karatsu type glaze. The bottom part has a iron based glaze, the top has a white glaze heavy in rice straw. It has been fired in a wood fueled kiln. There is a signature on the bottom that may read 'obata'. Probably the sake maker or the kiln name.
I think these used to be used for sake. They were filled up at the sake maker and then returned after use.

Era. Antique, I am unsure of the exact dating but I think Meiji, 1868-1912.
Meiji=1868-1912,
Taisho=1912-1926,
Showa=1926-1989,
Prewar Showa is called antique in Japan as I will call it early here, postwar Showa is called vintage in Japan, the same as I will use here.
