What does this mean?

Hi again Camilla,

Your father seems to have an interesting collection. Thanks again for your appraisal inquiries with Mearto. This item appears to another Veracruz Gulf Coast carving. This one recalls other "sonriente" (smiling) figures and faces. The MET has a great page dedicated to the figures -

As previously mentioned, dating the item would require in-person examination. The estimate provided is based on recent auction estimates and results of similar figures in similar dimensions. Please note that dealer or private prices may vary. Further, estimates are contingent on condition and authenticity. Thank you.
