Hi! Welcome. This is Doris. Thank you for requesting me.

Please let me know of you have other pieces.
Online auctions like eBay generally bring wholesale selling prices.
If you would like to sell close to estimated 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.Artfire.comBonanza.comAmazon Marketplace: http://services.amazon.com/content/sell-on-amazon.htm/ref=footer_soa?ld=AZFSSOAOr your nearest CraigsList.com where you can list items for free.
These sites are excellent and more upscale but fees are higher. I only recommend them if you have several items to sell.GoAntiques.comRubylane.comTias.comcyberattic.comtrocadero.com
In general, a private seller to a dealer or at auction can expect 30-60% of estimated retail value.Insurance replacement values are usually about 10% more than retail values.
I hope I have helped you.
