    Item was purchased in Cambodia and had been recovered from the sea.
    Does anyone know what exactly it is or for what it was used?

      It's call Kendi vase, used for ceremonial hand washing in Arabian region. The best was made by Chinese in Ming dynasty.

      The bad news is this one is a modern twist.

      Thank you Shrine. This one was recovered from under the sea. Hence the attached oyster shell. See the new photo.

      aubeachbum, there are people out there doing a business called porcelain aquaculture or so. They place porcelain vase in a oyster cage of oyster farm to grow the shellfish on the vase. They'll have a story to tell customers 1 year later.

      There is a post on this forum features a real piece from Tek Sing ship wreck. Notice it's relatively clean and no shell growing on the porcelains in the underwater photo.
