What does this mean?

Dear Rhonda,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry again and I hope you are well.

The presented object appears to be a pair of lamps with mounted ceramic or porcelain vases with measurements of 22 inches in height. The vases depict dragons and ornaments in Chinese style. It was common to mount older and imported Chinese vases as lamps since the late 19th century. In this case, the vases were made to be mounted as lamps in the second half of the 20th century.
This piece is in good condition and there is no serious damage visible in the images provided.
A fair market estimation would be between 100 to 250 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,
Georg
