If it is round with a lid and a handle on one side, then it is an Alfred Meakin of Staffordshire, England

ironstone chamber pot with lid, circa 1880 with a value of $35.

If it is round with a lid and no handle, then it is an Alfred Meakin of Staffordshire, England ironstone

covered vegetable server made circa 1880 with a value of $50 to $65.

Some sites that I recommend for selling are Offerup.com (local), Varagesale.com (local), Wanelo.com, http://www.decluttr.com, Bonanza.com, Ioffer.com, Etsy.com, eBay and letgo.com (local).
You can also go to invaluable.com or liveauctioneers.com and search their directory for an
auction house near you and consign to them.
Please do click the stars now for this one (bonuses are also welcome!), it is very important for me
to get five-star feedback for answers.
