Thanks for your question! It appears this piano was built in 1936 based on the serial number. Usually Kimball used the name "Consolette" to mean a "spinet" piano which was one shorter than 40" tall. Because of the very small size and the old age there unfortunately won't be too much value remaining in this instrument, even though you list it at excellent condition. After about 70 years a piano has lost most value according to appraisal standards, unless there has been significant restoration. Considering this and the used piano market, I would recommend a selling range of approximately $200-$450. Best wishes!
