    Can anyone tell me if this has any value or what it may have been used for? The posted image is of one side. There is an etched stamp on the bottom that looks like the number 7 . It is 10 inches tall from base to spout

      Well, here is wha tI think it may be-
      As interest in the hobby of china painting grew, women across the country formed china-painting clubs and societies and invited professionals and fellow china painters to teach classes. While women living in or near major cities were able to attend classes in professional decorating studios and design schools, amateurs who lived far from urban centers relied on instruction books . Home decorating and craft magazines, such as Art Interchange, Art Amateur, and, later, Keramic Studio, helped to disseminate information by providing technical tips and suggestions for designs. Trade catalogues advertised a wide array of porcelain blanks, enamels, brushes, equipment, and even portable kilns available for sale through the mail. The invention of the portable coal or gas-fired kiln enabled amateur china decorators to fire their work at home, transforming their experience.

      Frequently ladies decorated imported porcelain blanks. Eager to capitalize on the interest in china decoration, American potteries began manufacturing whiteware and porcelain blanks for amateurs-
      The piece you have does not look like a professional artist painted it. It just isn't good enough, in my estimation to have been sold in a store. Sorry. I don't mean to be harsh, but hundreds of these home done vases and bowls are still around. Plates and pitchers, whatever was chose from white ware to decorate. Usually after so many were done, they were given as gifts.
      This is what I think this is. My opinion only.
