What does this mean?

Hi Mary,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
I can't tell from these photos if these are hand-woven or machine-woven (I'd need to see the back of one corner of each to tell for sure) but will base these upon them being machine-woven and of lesser value.
Based on the photos and information provided, and subject to examination, this is:

A Tibetan hand-woven wool carpet
late 20th Century
With a circular medallion on a blue ground within a Greek key medial border and cream outer border, with cream selvedges
approximately 4'2" by 5'10"
PROVENANCE: purchased in Kathmandu Nepal 1998
$600-900*

*represents a fair-market value for auction purposes; retail or asking price may vary.

Please let us know if you have additional items to appraise, and thank you for using Mearto.

These are both hand woven - we were in the factory visiting while they were weave other carpets

I have edited the appraisal to note that, and raised the value accordingly.
