What does this mean?

Dear Laura,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
The chinoiserie central panel is an attractive - and unusual - element that I think adds considerably to the value (without it, this would have a value of $2,000-3,000).
Based on the photos and information provided, and subject to examination, this is:

An antique Louis XVI satinwood and mahogany marquetry inlaid and ormolu mounted marble-top commode
French, late 18th/early 19th Century
Of rectangular section with canted corners, surmounted by a corresponding marble or slate top, the case fitted with two hinged ebonized diamond inlaid cabinet doors centering a hinged central door with scarlet lacquer Chinoiserie scene, all raised on square tapering legs.
36 inches tall, 60 inches wide, 24 inches deep
CONDITION: appears to be of generally good condition
PROVENANCE: inherited
*represents a fair-market value for auction purposes; retail or asking price may vary.

Please let us know if you have additional items to appraise, and thank you again for using Mearto.
