Antique Pearlware Bough Pot English American Wall Vase Half Creamware c.1720?

This old vase was acquired at the auction of a well-known collector of old English pottery. Most of the things she owned were English, specifically Staffordshire creamware. I believe this item is a bough pot, made for sitting on a mantel and holding cuttings and dry flowers, etc. It's a little over 5" high, and 6" wide at the back. The colors are orange, very dark brown, and a gold (on the sides) that looks like it bubbled under firing. There are three chips at the top rim, a crack at the back, and a repaired spot on one side. I honestly think this piece might be as old as the number glazed on the bottom, which is 1729. It has very distinctive decorations, which don't look to me like anything else I've ever seen, but always winds up seeming, to me, like Early American. You be the judge.
Please look at the photos closely, and ask questions if you have them. Thanks for looking!
