What does this mean?

Hi Mike,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
You may be correct about the rarity of this font; I found a similar example having been sold for $700 in 2021 at an auction in Florida, but that was from the collection of a famous and discerning Hummel collector which may have helped boost the price a bit. https://www.liveauctioneers.com/item/95317697_rare-hummel-holy-water-font-77-tmk1
Based on the photos and information provided, and subject to examination, this is:
