What does this mean?

Good morning, Gail,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
This is a charming plate. Unfortunately, the market for these is such that I am certain it has more sentimental value than it does on the marketplace and I have attached links to a few auction sales of Noritake (and other) children's porcelain so you can see the low values they are bringing, and why I have valued yours as I have.
