Lemariot was a turn of the century (ca 1900) artist.
When assessing an artist's work, appraisers must look at completed sales of works by the same artist. Art gallery sales prices are private.We must then go to auction sales prices which are public. When using comparable work by the same artist, medium, subject matter and size are factors to be considered.Appraisers most often use price per square inch of previously sold comparable works by the same artist as a measure of value.
Please see the following image. It shows a signed engraving by Lemariot that sold at auction for about $57. It measured 14 x 24".
Yours is about the same size; so, the auction price would also be about $57 assuming good condition and depending on sale geographic location.
As for retail value, I have seen art sell for 4 to 5 times auction values depending on the tastes of the art gallery owner as well as location of the gallery.
In general, a private seller to a dealer, via consignment or at auction can expect 30-60% of estimated retail value.
Insurance replacement values are usually about 10% more than retail values.
If you wish to sell, these are my suggestions -
The internet has your widest pool of buyers. To sell close to estimated retail try the following -
Try ads on sites such as
Some like Etsy.com where you can set up your store for free and the selling fees are small - 20 cents to list an item plus 3.5% of the final price.
Or list with no fees whatsoever:
