What does this mean?

Hello Pete,

Thank you for your appraisal inquiry with Mearto. I apologize for the delay in your appraisal and thank you for your patience. The item presented appears to be Chinese ancestral portrait. Without additional detailed photos (or in person examination), I am unable to determine if the item is a painting or a print. The ancestral portraits gained popularity during the Ming dynasty and fell to mass reproductions during the late 18th to early 19th century.

The estimate provided is based on recent auction estimates and results of comparable Chinese ancestral portraits, considering dimensions. The estimate is contingent on whether the work is a painting or print and it's age. Please note asking or dealer prices may vary. Thank you and please take care.
