What does this mean?

Dear Phil,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry. My sincere apologies for the delay

The presented object appears to be a painting made in oil or acrylic paint on canvas with the measurements of 28 x 37 inches. The painting depicts a still life with vessels, onions, and pomegranates. This motif refers to Spanisch still lifes of the 17th century which mainly show the fruits of the poor and no luxury objects like the Dutch still lifes of this time. The painting is signed with the name "Dominguez" and was made in the second half of the 20th century. This painting was made by the artist Benjamin DOMINGUEZ (1942-2016).
Works by this artist were recently offered and remained often unsold on the international auction market.
This piece is in good condition and there is no serious damage visible in the images provided.
A fair market estimation would be between 1500 to 3000 USD.
This estimate is based on actual recent past recorded auction sales of comparable items. Retail "asking prices" can be higher and may vary.

With kind regards,

Thank you for the appraisal. Is it possible to list this item for auction in the Central American market?

Dear Phil,

Thank you for your inquiry about consigning through Mearto. When you submitted your item to us for appraisal, did you select "yes" or "maybe" when you were asked if it was for sale? If so, your item automatically entered a database, which is accessed by a number of regional and international auction houses actively seeking new items for consignment. If there is any interest, they will contact you directly through our platform. You will receive an email notification if one of them makes an inquiry. If you selected "no" when asked if the item was for sale, you can change this so that your item enters the database. Just visit "my collection," select the item, then click the "edit item" button at the top of the page. On the resulting page, click "yes" or "maybe" to answer the question: "Are you looking to sell this item?" Good luck and if there's anything else I can do to help, please just let me know!

With kind regards,
