meaning of markings on a pitcher that we own. Any help will be

I would call it a thick ceramic. It is a pitcher with an open top and
>spout. The handle is made to look like bamboo and the inside is on the
>very light pink side. Outside it is light beige with a Blue, red and
>white butterfly facing downward toward a palm-like greenry and blue, red
>and yellow flowers. On the opposite side, it looks like a bee, or a
>firefly and the same flower motiff. The bottom's only marking is the
>black brush painted g or h or perhaps a 5. There are no other markings
>on the pitcher. I inherited it from my Mother who was born in l90l and
>I don't know before that. She would never let us touch it, for fear we
>would break it. 5 children in the family, I don't blame her! Thank you
>for any help you can give.
Many thanks.
