Can't settle on an avatar pic.
I don't recognize the ocarina, but in the second photo it looks like there might be a maker's stamp along the bottom, next to a big C stamp. A photo of that might help people to identify your ocarina better :)

That guy

After a bit of digging around, I can confirm that it is most likely an ocarina by 是誠陶笛 or "Honest/Sincere Ocarinas"
From their Facebook Page

Good luck figuring out how to play it though, I've tried one and it's got a really complicated fingering system.

I tested it, it is the hardest thing that I have ever played in my life. The second extra hole on the back is a tuning hole that you use to go up a half step or a full step or even a one and a half step depending on how much you close the hole. This thing has a stupid amount of alternate fingerings for every note and any note that sounds flat can be tuned by the right thumb, making it really complex to play. However, i think you could make some interesting runs with this kind of instrument.

Oh dear, it sure does look confusing but it's a beautiful ocarina, hope the sound is at least worth all the effort
