What does this mean?

Hello Sarah,

Thank you for your appraisal inquiry with Mearto. The items presented appear to be kesi (缂丝) tapestries depicting a variety of birds. The embroidered panels appear to date to the 17th or 18th century. However, in-person examination may be able to determine age more accurately. The estimate provided is based on recent auction estimates and results of other comparable objects with similar design, age, and techniques. The estimate is contingent on a full condition report. Please note asking or dealer prices may vary. Thank you and please take care. Happy New Year.
