What does this mean?

This is a pair of antique, late 19th century, prior to 1892, Victorian era, Continental porcelain figural wall mount display brackets featuring cherubs or putti surrounded by flowers. The pair are hand painted and the glzes are done in light pastel pink and blue. There is a stylized underglaze blue 'crossed sword' mark with 3 dots that is similar to German Meissen porcelain, however these are not by Meissen. They are made in what is referred to as the 'Dresden' style with it use of flowers and the color palette. The popularity and high value of 18th century German Meissen caused many porcelain manufactories to use a similar crossed sword mark. Most are unknown makers, though the quality is evident in this pair. Since a European country of origin cannot be definitively stated, these are catalogued as 'Continental'. The estimate is based on actual recent past recorded auction sales of comparables. Retail 'asking prices' can be higher and vary.

Are both of the marked? What is the approximate size of each? Please also add some clear, in-focus close-ups of the faces of the cherubs and the backsides of these brackets.

Same mark on both. Bases are 8x6.5 inches. Hight of items is just short of 10inches.
