Hi, my name is***** a certified appraiser, and I'd be happy to help.
From the photo, this appears to be early 20th century rather than late 19th.
The retail value, through a dealer, would be approximately $400.00. This would be the figure to use for insurance purposes.
At auction or on consignment, you could expect to receive about half that.
Please let me know if you have additional questions or how I can help further.
Sincerely,
Jennifer
