Lucy,This is an authentic signature and correctly glazed piece by George Ohr of Biloxi.It is a novelty inkwell in the shape of an artist's palette made from 1890-1910.He made a series of these inkwell in the shape of cabins, palettes and cannons.The signature is a match.I would expect the price to end at $1200 to $1500.Good luck!It is important for you to click the stars after you have read this answer.
