What does this mean?

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.

It is a beautiful antique brooch. Such vintage jewellery are being offered at auction on a regular basis. It is the kind of jewellery design that was very popular in the first part of the 1900s. It is probably made of gilded silver and set with cut stones and cut glass. These were the often used materials around this time. It is the kind of jewellery that you would call bijouterie as they were made to match the clothes and the colours of the clothes in fashion.

The estimate provided is for a well-advertised specialised online jewellery auction, where I believe the lovely brooch has the best chance of realising its fullest potential. However, there is no measurement for the sentimental value you might attach to your grandmothers brooch. Retail "asking prices" can be higher and vary.

Please let me know if you have any additional questions. I’m happy to help.
Thank you
