Hi, thanks for your question!You didn't specify, but I'm assuming this was an upright piano as those are more common. Because of the very old age, the value will be quite low. Old pianos are victims of wear happening to the mechanical action which causes most of the depreciation. That said, old pianos which have been restored are worth much more because of the improvement of condition. Based on your description of the piano and assuming regular maintenance, I would recommend a selling range of approximately $100-$400 based on actual condition and local market. Best wishes!

Yes it's a upright and it's been in this house for over 15 years . Looks like brand new.
