What does this mean?

Hello again Peter,

Thank you for your appraisal inquiry with Mearto. The item presented appears to be bronze sculpture a grizzly bear by Pierre Nicolas Tourgueneff (France/Russian Federation, 1854 - 1912). Most of his works were published by the Susse Freres foundry in Paris. If your object is marked "Susse Freres," please let me know as that may effect the estimate. The estimate provided is based on recent auction estimates and results of this work and other comparable bronzes by Tourgueneff lacking the foundry seal. Please note asking or dealer prices may vary. Thank you and please take care.

Peter,

I see you have posted quite a few quality bronzes. My company would be quite interested in auctioning them and any other fine antiques or art you may be looking to sell. If this is of any interest kindly let me know your email and I can send some more comprehensive information.

Best,
Nick Cline
