Can anyone tell me if this jar is Japanese or Chinese please?

I just love this jar especially the child in the lion costume on the lid.

It has many bubbles in the glaze and has age marks but I do not know how old it may be can you help?

It has an impressed mark on the base that I covered in lipstick so that you could see it more clearly.

I have been unable to find out if it is Chinese or another language can you help?

Thank you
kind regards
Marie

The mark is not clear enough to be read, I'm afraid.
Anyway, from the shape and colors it cannot be Chinese, unless it is a modern copy.
From the colors it could possibly be Japanese or imitate Japanese styles, however.
