The American Terra Cotta Tile and Ceramic Company that was founded in 1881, began making art pottery in 1899 and in the next 12 years over 500 different shapes were introduced. Some of these did have impressed numbers on the base, which would have been the model/shape number but others like yours didn't.

I imagine that it isn't the number impressed on the bottom that it going to make the difference in price but the design itself. The more ornate pieces in the Art Nouveau style are the most sought after, whereas plainer, more traditional shapes are less so.
