18th Century Porcelain Cache Pot

Continental Europe 2nd Half 18th Century

A very attractive European porcelain cache pot with all over floral decoration, swirl fluting and basket weave modeling. There are roses, tulips, daisies, a morning glory, peony etc. The handles are in a bold rococo style. I do not recognize the the factory mark on the bottom but feel this is either French or German in origin. It probably was made about 1760.
