What does this mean?

This is a pair of gilt metal vases from China with a decorative motif featuring the various tools for a scholar. The mark on this indicates Ming period, Xuande Emperor, which was from 1425 - 1435. However, it is important to note that one wares from China, the mark indicates the item was made in a style that emerged during a specific period; it does not mean they were made in that actual time frame. The character marks on yours are modern and the pair dates to the 20th century. The estimate is based on actual past auction sales of comparables and is for the pair together.
