This is a French Old Paris hard paste porcelain footed cache pot, or vase. The date is circa 1860.
The cache pot is 12” high, and 9 ½” by 5 ¼”. This size is cylindrical and it is taller than most cache pots from this time period.
The front of the vase has a hand painted scene of horse riders with hunting dogs looking up at the sky and pointing at large flying birds, perhaps geese.
The landscape scene is bordered in gold trim, and there is age wear on the gold.
The rim and feet are trimmed in enamel paint. The ground is pink. The inside of the vase and bottom are glazed white. There is a side handle on each side, part of the mold, and the handles are painted in gold trim.
The rear right foot has an old repair that can be seen in the photos. The repair is solid and shows no sign of deterioration. There is a glaze skip in the interior bottom right.
There are no maker’s mark, which is generally true of most Paris porcelain from this time.
