Just out of curiosity, how did you set your price?  In particular, did you discuss the matter with your appraiser?  'Replacement' value doesn't really have much to do with this.  

 

 

ETA:  I"ll delete all of these comments in order to not screw up your ad if you decide to edit the headline.  Just let me know,

Yes I also had it appraised for retail. He suggested that they the piece is unique and in very good condition being almost 100 yrs old. He said I should set approx same as replacement value and adjust depending on the market and the individual buyer plus how fast I wanted to sell.

No need to delete comments I don't see how they could pose a problem.

'Replacement' value is normally quite a bit above 'retail', for a variety of reasons, and retail is quite a bit above what private party sellers actually realize.  I certainly wish you the best of luck with it but I think part of the difficulty may be your pricing.
