Antique Vase

I got this for a gift. I know it’s terra-cotta with silver on top. Would anyone know where this would be from? Egyptian? Greek? African?

Very nice. :)
The line pattern at bottom looks like it is at least emulating an African motif. The hammer dings (depressions) made me think of caribbean steel drums. Wild guess might be from some place like Jamaica or Haiti? Anything on the bottom like a stamp or writing?
