What does this mean?

Thank you for submitting your item for appraisal. This appears to be a modern reproduction Niello Silver mounted and cloisonne enamel decorated with carved bone inlay with lion head pommel Sword Shamshir. Judging from the carving I would assume it was produced in China, but Georgia is also possible. There are no traces of use, there are no russian silver hallmarks. It is a shamshir, but I doubt it is that old. The estimate is based on similar available in the trade.
