What does this mean?

Hello again Lori,

Thank you for your appraisal inquiry with Mearto. I apologize for the delay in your appraisal and thank you for your patience. The item presented appears to be a carved marble bust depicting the subject known as Venus. The bust resemble the sculpture known as the Medici Venus, which is housed at in the Uffizi collection. Again, without a signature or established provenance, artist attribution cannot be confirmed.

The estimate provided is based on recent auction estimates and results of other comparable marble busts depicting similar subjects and in a similar size. The potential value of the pillar is included. However, the two item may be evaluated separately. The estimate is contingent on a full condition report. Please note asking or dealer prices may vary. Thank you and please take care.
