Pate sur Pate Porcelain Vase Girl w/ Bow Early 1900s

An unmarked European piece of pate sur pate porcelain which I believe to be German, or possibly French. The vase is a mix of naturalistic and classical Greek motifs. The difficult process of applying multiple layers of liquid slip (paste or pate) has culminated in a fanciful portrayal of a young maiden with a bow- a kind of cross between Diana and Cupid- who appears to be shooting blossoms off a tree. The rounded back of the vase emulates a tree trunk. The background color is steel blue and the girl is traditional white, however, the designs around the edge have a pink tinge.

The vase stands 5" (12.7 cm) 3 1/8" (7.9 cm) wide at the base and top. Weight is 4 ounces. Condition is quite good. There are two tiny holes on the bottom near the front edge which look to have been there since firing. One photo shows a dark smudge which I have since cleaned.
