What does this mean?

Hi Jonathan,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
A few pairs of Wendell Castle Gannett Boardroom chairs have sold in the past year, bringing prices (for the pair) between $3,000-7,500 so an estimate of $2,000-3,000 would be appropriate if maybe a little high for just the one chair that you have.
If you opt to sell it at auction, it would most likely be catalogued as:

Wendell Castle (American 1932-2018)
Gannett Boardroom ash armchair with blue upholstery
31" H by 27" W by 26" D
