What does this mean?

Thank you for submitting your item for appraisal. This appears to be a late 19th century chromolithographic print depicting a couple dressed in renaissance revival fashion in a punt, being punted by a cupid, several swans add to the theatrical dreamlike atmosphere. The print has suffered from water stains and fading, the wooden boards at the back in combination with the effects of sunlight have made the paper turn yellow. In itself a picturesque piece of aging art. It is difficult to name an artist. It is in the manner of Hans Zatzka or Josef August Untersberger, both used pseudonyms. But it might as well be an unanymous british artist of the 1880s who made the scetches for this decorative print. The estimate is based on the condition issue. There is no measurement for the sentimental value you might attach to it. Still quite charming.
