Thanks for your patience! This piano dates back to 1946. At 36", it would be considered a spinet size. This was the smallest type of upright built and was limited in tone and volume due to shorter strings and a smaller soundboard. Baldwin spinets were known for their solid construction so these usually sell for a bit more than another company's spinet. That said, the very old age of the piano means much of its value has been lost to depreciation. In the current used market, I would recommend a selling range of approximately $350-$550. Best wishes!
