What does this mean?

Hi Jill,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
If you'd like this appraisal to include dimensions, which is typical, please forward the height and diameter to me at your convenience.
Collectors these days place a premium on items being in original condition so this being in restored condition may have devalued it.
As you can imagine, there are not very many of these redwood butcher's blocks that have come to auction. Here are a few redwood / butcher's block tables that have sold that have been used as a jumping off point for valuing yours (the price realized is in parenthesis in case you don't have access to the prices realizes database):
