How much is my table worth?

I have a tiered table that is hand-painted and signed by the artist Katherine Henick. How much might it be worth (in less than perfect condition)?

My table looks just like this one from Craigslist
(this is not my photo, just one that I found). I've seen hand-painted pieces by this artist vary in price from $10-$300, but I have no idea how to estimate where mine might fall within that range. There are no structural damages to the table itself, but there is a little damage to the painted part. Does this decimate the value? I'm aware (er, guessing) that the painting is what makes this table interesting, so I'm bracing for the worst here.
Are there any general rules of thumb I could apply? Anyone have knowledge of Katherine Henick's work and its market value? I would also welcome suggestions for furniture dealers in the Atlanta area who I could call with questions. This table must be sold as part of the Everything-Must-Go Purge of 09, but I'm trying to figure out if it's worth more leg work than just putting in my yard sale.
