What does this mean?

Hi Brad,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
Most of the ones that come to auction these days are in some disrepair; it's almost unheard of for them to be in clean working condition (that would actually cause a few raised eyebrows and some concern that something was amiss). A similar one sold about 5 years ago for $270; it doesn't indicate the condition of that one but I think yours is a little nicer (here's the link: https://www.liveauctioneers.com/item/33695373_stromberg-carlson-vintage-radio)
Based on the photos and information provided, and subject to examination, this is:

An Art Deco mahogany veneered "Acoustical Labyrinth" upright floor radio
Made by Stromberg-Carlson, circa 1930s
With mahogany veneers and silk backing.
44 inches high
CONDITION: puncture to fabric; needs repairs
PROVENANCE: acquired in 1990
$300-500*
*represents a fair-market value for auction purposes; retail or asking price may vary.
