What does this mean?

Hello Laurie,

Thank you for your appraisal inquiry with Mearto. I apologize for the delay in your appraisal and thank you very much for your patience. The items presented appears to be a spelter metal sculpture of Lord Venkateswara and an iron caldron. The caldron appears to be American, though we could not identify the star emblem to the underside.

Both items appears to date to the 18th or 19th century. Both items could date to an earlier period. However in-person examinations and metal testing would determine that.

The estimate provided is based on recent auction estimates and results of comparable objects in similar size. The estimate is for the two items together. Please note asking or dealer prices may vary. Thank you and please take care.
