What does this mean?

Dear Simon,

Thank you again for your second inquiry.

The appraised item is an engraving after another original painting by David Wilkie.

"The blind fiddler ", by John Rupert
Engraving published on 6th 1877, by the London Fine Art Association by Child permission of Messrs Henry Graves & Co.
Framed
Sight: approx 16" x 21.5" .
Condition: excellent

The work depicts a group of lower-class individuals within a humble setting who are entertained by the music of a fiddler. The original painting is part of the Tate collection in London: https://www.tate.org.uk/art/artworks/wilkie-the-blind-fiddler-n00099

The estimation in red is based on actual recent past recorded auction sales of comparables.

This engraving could be sold as a pair with the other work you own. The estimation for both works would be between $300 and $400.

Best regards,

Karine
