What does this mean?

Dear Janice,

What you have here are Chinese Sancai porcelain vases made late 19th century. Sancai means three colors although some of them have four colors ( in later times ). Chinese art has a lot of interest and this type of porcelain is sought after. You have some nice wooden feet with them that helps in making a better price. Estimation is based on the price this vases can make in an auction or sales room.

Is the appraisal for each vase? Or the pair? What do I do to sell on consignment?
