The high footrim and lipped mouthrim would indicate this piece is early Northern Song, there is firing ring in the center where another piece would have been stacked on top during the firing process.

Old song bird catcher from the Minang people of Central Sumatra. I bought this in Padang in 1988 and it was already old at the time, so I can date this to about 1950.
