A pair of Antique Potpourri Urns

An acquaintance who's mother passed away recently asked me to consign these to my antique booth. So, unfortunately she could only tell me that her mother collected high-end items, often from Germany or France. I have Google Lensed these Urns for literally hours and cannot come up with a match. They have no markings, anywhere that I could find. They appear identical and possibly hand-painted.

Makes me think they might be considered rococo. I did check eBay, Etsy, RubyLane, LiveAuctioneers, Worthpoint… and didn’t see any like yours, none worth adding a link. Let us know if you do get some info.

Thanks Mark for all of your work on this! I did the same searches and came to same conclusion.
Very much appreciate the validation.

It's in the style of the famous German Meissen Porcelain works, a company whose items were widely copied by a great number of smaller companies centered around Dresden Germany. Dresden was fire bombed during World War Two virtually leveling much of the city. The Meissen originals were well marked, the copies often carry fake Meissen marks, or could have no markings at all. Values are all over the map depending on quality and attribution. You'd really need to have these physically inspected by an appraiser for a valuation.
