What does this mean?

Dear Nisha,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.

The presented object appears to be a brass plaque with unknown measurements. The piece depicts the head of a monkey and was made in the 21st century.
This piece is in good condition and there is no serious damage visible in the images provided.
A fair market estimation would be between 20 to 40 USD.
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,
Georg

Thank you for your quick response. I would request you to please have another look at this because the quality of the brass used itself is quite old. I would like to share the reverse of the mask with you as well...do let me know how do I share that.

PS: I've got to come to know some more about this particular kind of work. This is basically Dhokra art which uses the lost-wax casting technique.
