Hello and welcome! My name is Doris.
I have been an antiques collector, dealer and appraiser for over 56 years.
I will be pleased to help you.
I researched your tapestry before I decided to answer.
Your Victorian period framed tapestry is French.
My research for similar tapestries resulted in my being able to determine a retail value of $2200-2500 for yours assuming some fading but otherwise in good condition.
If you would like to sell close to retail , some ideas are:
The internet has your largest audience of buyers. Place small ads on these sites or set up your own small store on these sites.
Etsy.com - small fees - 20 cents to list plus 3.5% final price.
Goantiques.com - more upscale fee based
Rubylane.com - more upscale fee based
Amazon Marketplace: http://services.amazon.com/content/sell-on-amazon.htm/ref=footer_soa?ld=AZFSSOA
Another method that could be very effective would be to place a classified in the "Maine Antique Digest" It has a large readership of collectors all across the country.
A private seller to a dealer can expect 30-60% of retail value.
I hope I have helped you.
