Here's a reference about the various wonders housed at 
Fonthill Abbey


A Rich and HIGHLY ORNAMENTED CASKET of the 
very rare old Japan, completely covered with figures

And if you scroll up, you can also see:
- Six Japan heron-pattern embossed dishes
- Two butter-pots on feet and a bason, cover and stand of Japan
- A very rare specimen of the basket-work Japan
- Two very rare Japan cups
- Two matchless Japan dishes


So it would seem to be porcelain.
