Antique Early Staffordshire Pearlware Shoe Form Pen Holder Inkwell Circa 1820:
$255


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.
