Chinese Jug ?

by Luks

Hi Peter,

I need your help to identify this Jug / Pitcher.

It looks like it is made from clay. Colour is dark brown with a little bit of green spot.

There is no lit neither top nor side for water inlet. It only has one small hole approximately 1cm at it bottom. Water will be injected through a kind of air pressure technique in order to fill a water inside. Once water is injected, it will remain inside. No spill out even the hole is without a cap.

The handle is in dragon shape. It has a small hole at it mouth which meant as a water outlet.

Thank you for your help.

Could it be from Southeast Asia? I cannot believe that it is Chinese, unless it is modern creation. Chinese ceramics rarely have such elaborate shapes.
Maybe the bottom could provide a hint?
