What does this mean?

Dear Camilla,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry and my sincere apologies for the delay

The presented object appears to be a Pre-Columbian ceramic vessel in the shape of a bird. This pottery in style and motif comparable to pieces from Peru of the Chimu period ca. 900-1400 AD.
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,
Georg
