What does this mean?

Dear Gary,

What you have here is a Thai sacrificial bowl made mid 20th century. Casting is quite sharp and a little rough. Debris on the bowl is deliberately done to suggest old age. I believe its made for export and for tourists to buy a lovely souvenir when they are in Thailand. Having said that; this bowl is very decorative and has good atmosphere. I believe if it came to auction it could fetch a price around the estimate I gave above.
