Dear Alexander,

Looks like a real Delft vase to me, made by the Porceleyne Byl (1657-1803). I think originally it would have had a lid and this sort of vase was often part of a garniture set.
Please see:

Kind regards, Patrick

Dear Alexander,

I agree with Patrick, indeed Delft, Porceleyne Bijl, first half of the 18th century.
