What does this mean?

Dear Roxanne,
Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry. Your rug is an Afghan Tribal rug in the Kilim tradition. It is handwoven in a flatweave method out of dyed wool, and it is in good condition. The design on the field of the rug includes a Yildiz or star, which symbolizes happiness. Based on recent price realizations for rugs similar to yours, in age, style, and design, a fair market estimate would be between 200 and 500 US dollars.
Best Regards,
Morgan
