Molded 1800s Redware Hand

Unusual folky redware hand holding a pencil, with detailed shirt cuff and defined fingernails. Possibly intended ass a paperweight. The oxide slip is in remarkably good condition with professionally done restoration to two fingertips, invisible except under black light.   4½”  X  2½”. Possibly Pennsylvania or New Jersey, but more likely of Ohio origin. Second half of the 1800s. A great piece of folk art.
