What does this mean?

This is an antique late 19th century, Victorian era, porcelain lidded serving tureen from a dining set. This was originally produced as a white ware or blank in Limoges, France by the firm of Haviland and Company. The H&Co over L green mark on this was used from 1876-1889. The piece was then exported, many to the U.S. and purchased to be decorated and painted by hand by hobbyists and ceramic studio decorators. This was hand decorated (usually by women) and initialed by the ceramic painter, JJW and dated 1889. The estimate is based on actual recent past recorded auction sales of comparables. Retail 'asking prices' can be higher and vary.
