The mark on the base of each vase/urn is the 18th century mark from the “Dot” or “Academic” period of the Meissen factory, Circa 1763-1774 when a blue dot was painted between the hilts of the “swords” mark. The famous “crossed swords” mark (taken from the Arms of Saxony) was introduced in 1722 and has been the standard mark of the factory up to the present day.
The damage shown to one handle on one urn and the chip to the lip have been seriously taken into consideration and is reflective in the price.
