Is this a Lowrey or Stein piano? Upright or grand? If upright, how tall is it?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It's a Lowry that says "scale by Charles Frederick Stein". It's an upright and is 41" tall.
Expert:  Tyler, MM, AAGO replied 1 year ago.

Thanks for the info. Lowrey pianos were made primarily by Story and Clark. Lowrey is an electronic organ company that builds organs for home use and at one point in the 60's and 70's they dabbled in selling pianos, though that business didn't take off. At 41" tall you have a console sized piano. Based on the maker, size, age, described condition and depreciation in the used market, I would recommend an insurance value of approximately $1,100. Best wishes!
