What does this mean?

Dear Kim,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.

The presented object appears to be a watercolor on paper with 14 x 17.5 inches measurements. The drawing depicts an Mediterran scene with an park and architecture. The artwork is signed in the lower left Sirmione and dated 1953. The title above is not clearly readable (I)tal. Salbat..
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 100 to 250 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,
Gregory

Thank You.,

Interesting what you discovered about the history. I appreciate your research.

If sold, what is the process? Do I pay for shipping?

What is the size of the general marketplace for buyers?

Also, there is a bit of slight tearing as this old watercolor paper is quite delicate.

Thanks,
Kim

Dear Kim,

Thank you for your inquiry about consigning through Mearto. When you submitted your item to us for appraisal, did you select "yes" or "maybe" when you were asked if it was for sale? If so, your item automatically entered a database, which is accessed by a number of regional and international auction houses actively seeking new items for consignment. If there is any interest, they will contact you directly through our platform. You will receive an email notification if one of them makes an inquiry. If you selected "no" when asked if the item was for sale, you can change this so that your item enters the database. Just visit "my collection," select the item, then click the "edit item" button at the top of the page. On the resulting page, click "yes" or "maybe" to answer the question: "Are you looking to sell this item?" Good luck and if there's anything else I can do to help, please just let me know!

With kind regards,
Gregory
