What does this mean?

Dear Linda,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry and I wish you a Happy New Year 2022. My sincere apologies for the huge delay with the appraisal.

The presented object appears to be a painting made on board with the measurements of 2'3" x 3'6". The painting depicts a couple in traditional Chinese court robes bringing sacrifices. The clouds in the foreground could be interpreted that this scene being in place in a spiritual sphere or could be ancestors. The color and the quality of the wood and the details of the workmanship are a hint that this piece was made in the 20th century after older originals.
Works by this artist were recently offered and sold on the international auction market.
This piece is in good condition and there is no serious damage visible in the images provided.
A fair market estimation would be between 50 to 150 USD.
This estimate is based on actual recent past recorded auction sales of comparable items. Retail "asking prices" can be higher and may vary.

With kind regards,
George
