Ginger Jar Info Please

Hi there, I bought a ginger jar /teapot(?) and would like to know it's age, value and purpose. It looks like a ginger jar but has a detachable brass spout and a removable lid with a long odd thing attached which goes inside the jar. The lid is held in place by a very thin pin which is attached to the metalwork at the top of the jar. There is a thin brass handle, and strips of metal down the sides and round the bottom, holding the top in place. Was it used for tea or some liquid? (sorry, photo wouldn't upload) Thanks for your help, Jenni
