What does this mean?

Dear Julia,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.

I am pleased to say that I have been able to identify the artist who executed your painting.

Your oil painting, a portrait of an old man playing the violin appears to be the Italian artist Raphael Fanti from Pisa. It was probably executed around the 1950s or 1960s. It is housed in an ornate gilt frame and the condition appears to be very good overall.

The estimate provided is based on comparables offered and sold at auction in the last five years. The subject work's size, composition, condition (based on photographs provided), and the artists' current auction market were considered when determining the estimate. In many cases, pricing for similar items available on the primary (retail) market vary and are often higher than secondary (auction) market examples.

Best regards,
