What does this mean?

This is an antique, later 19th century, about 1880's, Victorian era American made, silverplated, tilting ice water pitcher on stand that was produced by Meriden Brittania Company of Meriden, Connecticut. Technically, a samovar is a Russian hot tea urn. This object is American and would be for cold, ice water. These were usually part of a larger tea set. The object is cast from metal and quadruple plated and there is some engraved surface decoration. Plated wares do not have a precious metal melt down value like sterling silver does. The estimate is based on actual recent past recorded auction sales of comparables. Retail 'asking prices' can be higher and vary.
