What does this mean?

Dear Christie,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry. So that I may best assist you, can you please upload a few better images of the paper label. Sadly both detail pictures are blurred. Is the painting signed on the front?

With kind regards,

I see no signature. Only the paper tag that was stuffed in the back. I will post better photos. Sorry I am in the midst of moving and getting within good range to take one is tricky. Perhaps I will take an outdoor shot.

Dear Christie,

Thank you for the additional images/ information and your patience.

Sadly regarding technical problems, the images and messages were not displayed. I apologize for the delay of the appraisal.

The presented object appears to be a painting made in oil or acrylic paint on canvas with the measurements of 72 x 48 inches. The painting depicts a interior view of a building with two phone booths. The painting is not sighed and was made in the last third of the 20th century.
This piece is in good condition and there are no serious damages visible.
An estimation would be between 800 to1500 USD.
This estimation is based on actual recent past recorded auction sales of comparables. Retail "asking prices" can be higher and vary.

With kind regards,
