What does this mean?

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.

It is a lovely set of three serving pices. Such vintage flatware are being offered at auction on a regular basis.
The marks indicate that the silver was made in Germany in the beginning of the 1900s. It appears to have been made in the historicismus style - where many styles were mixed into one style.
I think that all three pieces are servers - perhaps cheese servers. They are decorative but without any major value.

The estimate provided is for a well-advertised specialised online silver auction, where I believe the silver set has the best chance of realising its fullest potential. However, there is no measurement for the sentimental value you might attach to the silver pieces. Retail "asking prices" can be higher and vary.

Please let me know if you have any additional questions. I’m happy to help.
Thank you
