My name is XXXXX XXXXX I am here to help with your question.
On today’s market paintings by Edmund Caldwell (1852 - 1930) carry auction estimate of $800 - $1200 (477GBP – 715GBP) on average. Occasionally, the subject matter carries the bidding well past the high estimate and a few works have hammered down at $8000 - $10,000 (4770GBP – 5963GBP). Rhinoceros depictions in art tend to have a niche following, and thus your painting should gain more bidder interest.
If interested in selling this, the best route would be through auction. Here is a list I have made for you of the auction companies who have handled works by this artist:

It is free to contact auction houses and get an estimate for sale. You can contact each auction house through their website. You will send them photos and information. You would not be obligated to sell with any of them. Please bear in mind that estimates will vary from each business, and that the highest estimate is not necessarily a guarantee of a sale.
Contact all of them, if possible for you, regardless of the company location. This will also help you get a consensus opinion on the value and estimates. Approach each one as if you are interested in selling through them. Auction houses take a percentage of the final sale price, so it is in their best interest to sell it for a premium bid.
Feel free if you have further questions about your item.
Please only leave feedback when you feel satisfied your question has been answered.
