What does this mean?

Dear Elizabeth,

Thank you for taking the time to upload images to Mearto of your hand-hooked wool rug. What a great design of two cockatoos surrounded by stylized flowers! Hooked carpets sell based on size, quality, condition, age and imagery. Your example is of a generous size, is circa 1930, appears to require a light cleaning but also appears free from any major damage or bleaching from the sun and additionally has a very comely composition.
Currently at auction, similar hooked rugs featuring animals (rather than landscape or geometric scenes) are selling in the range of $200 - $300USD with the occasional piece superseding that range to the $400 range and even higher when the design strikes a cord with bidders.
