Your piece is from a vanity set and is called a slop jar. While it is similar in appearance to the chamber pot, it should have a lid. Primarily used to capture all waste water resulting from tooth brushing and bodily washing water from the basin in the set.
This piece is American ironstone and is in the Olivette pattern from an unknown maker that would have been in Ohio or New Jersey during the 1890-1910 time period. The design on the front is a Moss Rose, a popular design with both European and American potters at the time. Pieces from chamber sets do not have a lot of value currently, this piece being worth about 20.00. OF course, these days, it would be re-purposed as a vase.
