What does this mean?

Hi Suhaila ,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
If you are interested in selling this, I would highly recommend working with an auction house that has a dedicated department to Islamic works of art...this is too refined an object to go through a general auction house that would not have the expertise and global reach to get a suitably high price for this. I am happy to provide you with some names of auction houses to reach out to.
Based on the photos and information provided, and subject to examination, this is:
