What does this mean?

Hi Kim,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
A comment on comparables - Chairish (and 1stDibs etc) are retail websites whereas the values Mearto provides are fair-market, for auction purposes, which are a fraction (1/2-1/4) of retail value. But they can be tremendously helpful in researching for attributions, etc. In this case, I'm quite familiar with Pearsall's designs and think it's similar to - but not quite right - to make an attribution to him. This style was popular among many designers in the 1960s and later that without more information (like a label, factory mark etc) it is difficult to make a more concrete attribution.
Based on the photos and information provided, and subject to examination, this is:
