How Do I Sell My Mom's Coromandel Screens?

Q: I need some help. I live in NYC and am the executor of my parents' estate, which is a pretty massive task. My mom was a decorator and their home in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, has lots of beautiful things, including two Coromandel screens; one is eight panels and 8' tall, the other is six panels and 7' tall. I know these are valuable, and I want to get a fair price for them. Auction houses in NYC have passed, because they have so much current stock, and because transporting these screens from Florida would be costly. Can any Apartment Therapy readers recommend a Coromandel screen specialist who might want to buy these pieces? Or a reputable antique dealer in south Florida?
