What does this mean?

Dear Timo,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry again and I hope you are well.

The presented object appears to be a wooden sculptured ladder with measurements of 300 cm in length. This is a ladder to reach the floor of a typical Dayak longhouse which has raised floors. Every step is sculptured as a head of figures in a typical style of the Dayak tribal art. this piece was made in the 20th century.
This piece is in medium condition and there is no serious damage visible in the images provided.
A fair market estimation would be between 400 to 800 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
