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.
Thank you for the information and photo.
Please allow me time to research the data required by your question, calculate current values and write my answer.
I should be back in 40 minutes.
I thank you in advance for your patience.
No. You can come back as any time.
From my research, I was able to determine a retail vintage shop value of $15,500 for your 4 panel 6ft tall hand carved Chinese screen.
A private seller to a dealer or at auction can expect 30-60% of retail value.
I hope I have helped you.

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 basedRubylane.com - more upscale fee basedTias.comAmazon Marketplace: http://services.amazon.com/content/sell-on-amazon.htm/ref=footer_soa?ld=AZFSSOAcyberattic.comtrocadero.com
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.
I highly recommend this method. They only charge $25 for 25 words in a classified ad. There publication is as a monthly newspaper as well as on their internet website.
Make sure you list your screen as local pick-up only. That way, the customer will have to make arrangements for shipping.
If you want to sell quickly at about 1/2 retail, then I will research dealers that might be interested.
Give me s few minutes to locate dealers. I will reply in about 20 minutes.
