      I think it sure looks good for that time period. I think there were many many of these types of jars made for a long period. Qing era ?

      These pots were made from the late Ming Dynasty to the Republic, early 20th Century and were widely exported as they contained foodstuffs. The style is virtually unchanged through the ages. Although usually called ginger jars they more often held preserves like Chinese salted vegetables but ginger too. Yours has age but difficult to place, probably somewhere in the Qing Dynasty during the 19th Century. The mark on the base is not a character, maybe a symbol or maker's logo.
