What does this mean?

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.

It is a lovely collection of various silver cutlery. Such antique and vintage silver cutlery are being offered at auction on a regular basis.
The best prices are obtained for complete sets of flatware with eg. 12 of each different piece. In this case the cutlery is quite varied and there are some odd bits and pieces. The appraisal depends on the weight of the entire collection and also how many pieces that are clearly marked.

The estimate provided is for a well-advertised specialised online silver auction, where I believe the cutlery collection has the best chance of realising its fullest potential. However, there is no measurement for the sentimental value you might attach to the cutlery pieces. Retail "asking prices" can be higher and vary.

Please let me know if you have any additional questions. I’m happy to help.
Thank you

Hello. I’m disappointed in your appraisal. Many people who saw the photograph since i sold it for the recommended price, told me that the hammered silver teaspoons are rare Linton work. Worth much more. Just FYI
