This is a large pitcher & basin that belonged to my late uncle. The pitcher is about 12x9 and the bowl is 16x4. I believe this belonged to my grandmother from rural Louisiana, from the early 1900's. Both the pitcher & the basin have the same marks. Unfortunately, I cannot get a clear look at the marks, and I cannot get a clear picture of them. It seems to be "yme conirle." The 2nd word may be misspelled. I'd love to know the age & value of it. We want to keep it in the family is it was my grandmother's. In fact, we want to keep it anyway.

Ironstone? Without proper identification there is no telling the value. We go to antique auctions up here and a pitcher and basin would run around 50-75 dollars depending on maker. Also if there is any crack, chips or staining.
