What does this mean?

Dear Sara,
Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry. Your rug is an Oushak which has been handwoven out of wool. Oushak rugs originated in Western Turkey and are known for their distinct features, such as an angular large-scale floral design in earth tone colors set on an ivory background. Your rug dates from the early to mid 20th century and is in good condition. Based on recent price realizations, a fair market value for your rug would be between 500 and 1000 US dollars.
