What does this mean?

Dear Valarica,

Greetings, thank you for taking the time to submit your inquiry regarding this picture. You have what is commonly known as an enhanced fashion lithograph. Yours is hand-cut, hand-colored and adorned with organza and lace trim. These were popular in the late 19th century and I've seen lithographs from French fashion magazines enhanced in the same way.
At auction the prices vary widely and while some have sold for $40USD the majority sell between $75 - $100USD.
If you have any follow-up questions, do let me know and thank you for taking the time to submit to Mearto.

Most Sincerely,

Erin-Marie
