What does this mean?

Dear Shriyan,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry. Sadly regarding technical problems, the images and messages were not displayed. I apologize for the delay of the appraisal.

The presented object appears to be a cabinet with unknown measurements. This cabinet was highly possible made in Ceylon and uses exotic woods in its construction like satinwood and ebony wood for the decor elements. This cabinet follows in its construction traditions from the 17th century with the combination of an main and upper body on a stand. Such pieces were made mainly for export in the second half of the 19th century.
This piece is in medium condition and there are damages visible.
An estimation would be between 1.000 to 2.000 USD.
This estimation is based on actual recent past recorded auction sales of comparables. Retail "asking prices" can be higher and vary.

With kind regards,
