What does this mean?

Dear Ms. Bernardin,

Greetings, thank you for taking the time to submit images of your English oak hutch with ebony and light wood inlay and glass front doors created in the Jacobean / Tudor style. It is reminiscent of the work of British cabinet maker George Fleet who was active in the mid to late 19th century. I can't say for sure if this is his work, he usually has a small label hidden away in a discreet location like the inside of a drawer.
In any case, similar styled cupboards have an average auction selling price of between $700USD and $800USD.
If you have any follow-up questions, please let me know and thank you for calling upon the services of Mearto.

Sincerely,

Erin-Marie

Thank you for your valuation and information. I cannot find anything on George Fleet - can you direct me to any other samples of his work?

Hello - wondering if I can get a reply to my question above?

Dear Bernardin,

Greetings, I apologize that I didn't respond to your inquiry sooner, somehow I missed it in my inbox! George Fleet was a British furniture maker on the High Street, Stoke, Stoke-on-Trent, UK. This link will take you to some of the history of the designer including showing examples of his labels: http://www.thepotteries.org/streets/stoke/fleet.htm. This link will take you to one of a display cabinet by the maker: https://www.the-saleroom.com/en-us/auction-catalogues/halls-fine-art-auctioneers/catalogue-id-srhal10040/lot-56063315-c1b2-4092-bef6-a43400cf004c

Please let me know if you have any follow-up questions and I'll be on the lookout for your reply.

Most Sincerely,

Erin-Marie
