Can you tell me what this large glass jar found in my rented house's garden might be used for?

It's a fat, 3' high glass bottle essentially, but with a 2" hole in both the top and the bottom of the glass. It was found sitting on a raised metal platform, also with a 2" or so hole that connects with the 2" bottom of the glass bottle's hole. It was totally empty when I found it (the garden is filled with long-abandoned odds and ends), but underneath the raised metal platform I found what looks to be a vast snail burial ground.
Any ideas to its old or future uses in a garden? If it helps, I'm in Austin, TX.
