What does this mean?

Dear Jonathan,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.

The presented object appears to be a chromolithograph on paper with measurements of 20 x 27 inches. The print depicts a hunting scene with a hunter shooting ducks and has the title "English Snipe". This print is a reproduction of a painting by the American illustrator and painter Arthur Burdett Frost (1851-1928). This piece was made in the 20th century.
Works by this artist were recently offered and sold on the international auction market.
This piece is in bad to medium condition and there is a stain in the upper right area visible in the images provided.
A fair market estimation would be between 100 to 300 USD.
This estimate is based on actual recent past recorded auction sales of comparable items. Retail "asking prices" can be higher and may vary.

With kind regards,
Georg
