What does this mean?

Hi Toni,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
Antique and vintage Murano glass pieces DO carry a bit of a premium as long as the form is particularly complex and/or rare, the pieces are signed (and verified to Murano) and the condition is good. This group of glass grapes doesn't have any of that going for it, though these are fun and there is always a market for decorative glass and stone fruit.
Based on the photos and information provided, and subject to examination, this is:

An assorted group of 8 bunches of colored glass grapes
possibly Murano, mid 20th Century
In green, blue, orange, yellow and brown, each with glass-leaf ends and linked with wire loops. Minor separations and breaks
PROVENANCE: purchased at auction/estate sale
$100-150*
*represents a fair-market value for auction purposes; retail or asking price may vary.
