I was able to find out the pottery was made in Ohio at the Columbus Pottery Company by Googling the name.  That is all I can find out.  I have had no luck finding another piece of pottery with this mark.  The company is now out of business,Columbus Pottery Company, Unable to ID this pottery.

and I would like to know if this piece is worth anything.

I'm not finding anything. It's possible it was a collaboration between two manufacturers. One making the chinaware outside the US, and the other decorating it and retailing it inside the US; there were a number of companies doing that in the early C20th to get round the high tariffs on imports. This possibly dates from the early 20thC

There's this, which you may have seen. If they were in business such a short time, it explains why there aren't more examples. https://kb.osu.edu/handle/1811/47606

Thank you!  This is very interesting.  I now know why I cannot find any other pottery with this marking. A man named James L. Murphy was an expert on Ohio pottery and wrote the article. He passed away in 2012 I believe.
