What does this mean?

Dear Vivienne,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.

The presented object appears to be a Turkish Kilim rug with the measurements of 270cm x 152cm. The kelim is decorated with hand-knotted colorful decor. This piece was made in the second half of the 20th century.
Works by this artist were recently offered and sold 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 100 to 300 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,
Georg
