What does this mean?

Hello Tracey,

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 a mixed media sculpture depicting a dragon turtle and crane. The object appears to be Chinese in nature and the dragon turtle is a common element in decorative art within Feng Shui, promoting courage, support, success, and more. The work appears to be composed of bone, soapstone, and some precious stones. The estimate provided is based on recent auction estimates and results of other comparable objects by dating to the late 19th - mid 20th century, depending on size. The estimate is contingent on a full condition report. Please note asking or dealer prices may vary. Thank you and please take care. Happy New Year.
