What does this mean?

Dear Dave,

Thank you for taking the time to upload images to Mearto of your embroidered textile. This piece was hand-made made in the 20th century, in Myanmar and consists of gold and silver wrapped silk thread and faux gems on couch-work embroidery. Many examples were exported and sold abroad; in my experience I have seen these in Thailand. While your scene consists of two figures on elephants- dancers and procession scenes are also common iconography. Similar pieces, framed and unframed are currently selling at auction between $4100 - $200USD. Thank you for your submission to Mearto.

Sincerely Erin-Marie @ Rare-Era
