I need to get a trifold beautifully carved, bedroom screen

This answer was rated:

Hello, I need to get a trifold beautifully carved, bedroom screen valued. How can I go about this? Thanks Jessica
JA: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes it's turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Tell us what else you do know and the Appraiser will be able to better assist you.
Customer: Can I up load a picture?
JA: Is there anything else the Appraiser should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.
Customer: The screen has three cloth / upholstered panels with glass. Each panel is lined by carved wood. We believe the piece was bought in Paris circa 1959. IN excellent condition
Hello,

I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you!

Just uploaded the picture. :)

Hello, I am happy to look over your screen.

This is a Louis XV / rococo style dressing screen. It looks in great condition with nice clean cream  brocade fabric  panels and intact upper glass inserts. The wood doesn’t look gilded to me but do correct me if I am wrong.

Today these dressing screens are popular as room dividers especially the more refined smaller sizes like your own. You could sell via auction or via an online market place such as ebay or etsy with a guide price of $400 - $500.

If you have any further questions please let me know.

Thank you.
