Antique Early Staffordshire Pearlware Shoe Form Pen Holder Inkwell Circa 1820

This unusual shoe form early Staffordshire pearlware pen holder dates to the 1820s. It was purchased from the estate of a family who owned a high-end antiques shop in Charleston, South Carolina, and before I gave it a super-gentle washing I photographed it with its original price tag of $1,200 from the antiques shop, A'Riga IV. I know very little about antique ceramics, but I've purchased a few pieces from this estate and I do know that these folks knew their Staffordshire, so I'm sure there's a good reason why this is the highest-priced piece of ceramics I've yet seen from their shop's inventory. The pen holder has a wonderful hand-painted design and a delicate and graceful form. It has overall fine crazing, but there is no significant discoloration under the glaze. There are a few shallow glaze chips on edges, but overall the condition is very good for a piece this old. Please use zoom feature to see the condition--I've taken closeups from all angles and my photos show the color and condition well. The shoe measures six inches long and one-and-one-half inches high. Please email with any questions or for more photos; I'll respond within 24 hours. Please note that I've set a low reserve just in case I decide to end the listing and send this to a brick-and-mortar sale, but once the reserve is met this sale will run its course.
