What does this mean?

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.

It is a very beautiful gilded tankard from the early 1800s. On occasion you see similar tankards at auction and they are usually quite popular and fetches a reasonable price depending on the condition of the tankards.
Your tankard appears to be in good condition without any faults or repairs.

The estimate provided is for a well-advertised specialised silver auction, where I believe the tankard has the best chance of realising its fullest potential.
Please let me know if you have any additional questions. I’m happy to help.
Thank you
