What does this mean?

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry. And thank you for the additional photos.

It is a beautiful pewter urn or vase. Such antique urns and vases of pewter are being offered at auction on a regular basis.
The urn was made in the first part of the previous century - that is around the 1900s-1930s. It was probably made in the far east as a kind of export item that was very common in that period. There are some lovely details and the decoration is beautifully made. The urn does bear signs of wear and use which will decrease the selling price.
All in all it is a lovely piece that would probably attract the attention of both collectors and dealers if it came up for auction.
The estimate provided is for a well-advertised specialised online works of arts auction, where I believe the pewter urn has the best chance of realising its fullest potential. However, there is no measurement for the sentimental value you might attach to the lovely pewter urn. 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
