Here’s my $4.00 find! I think it’s a biscuit jar, worth around $200.00 +!
It has a few dots missing, but no cracks or marks.

A Brief History of Nippon
“The Nippon era began in 1891 when the Japanese porcelain was clearly marked “Nippon” due to the McKinley Tariff Act. This act required that all porcelain be marked with the country of origin. (“Nippon” literally translates to “Japan”.) This porcelain was made specifically to be exported .” https://www.picollecta.com
“Slip or colored clay string decoration on Japanese porcelain, in look not unlike ‘cake frosting’ in which a diluted clay has been used to give the piece a three dimensional appearance. Produced in Japan from the end of the 1800’s until the mid 1900’s reflecting the western interest in the exotic, of the late 19th century period. Over the time styles and materials changed.” http://gotheborg.com/glossary/moriage.shtml
