What does this mean?

Dear Amy,

What you have is a Japanese Koro or Incense burner made around 1920, this is called early Taisho period. These bronze or brass ( depend on the alloy ) burners were made for export to the wesdt ( Europa and USA mainly ). Details are good af the casting. I expect your Koro to make a price around the estimate if it came to auction.
