What does this mean?

Dear Evan,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.

The presented object appears to be pastel drawings with 1 x 2 inches measurements each. The drawings depict two still lives with bottles and ceramics. The artworks are monogrammed with the initials "J.B.". Sadly no additional information for an artist with these initials fitting in style and motif is given by reference books and databases.
Comparable objects were recently offered and sold on the international auction market.
This piece is in good condition and no severe damage is visible in the images provided.
A fair market estimation would be between 50 to 100 USD each.
This estimate is based on actual recent past recorded auction sales of comparable items. Retail "asking prices" can be higher and may vary.

With kind regards,
