What does this mean?

This is a late 19th century, circa 1890, late Meiji period, Japanese porcelain tall ginger jar with foo dog atop as handle in a Famille Verte Rose Medallion design that is Chinese inspired. The decoration was transferprinted or stamped onto the surface then embellished or filled in with color by hand. The gilding is real gold, howeverthere is no longer a precious metal meltdown value as the cost to extract the gold would exceed the value of the amount extracted. This is an antique decorative ware. The estimate is based on actual recent past recorded auction sales of comparables.
