I have a bush and lane Chicago upright parlor grand piano

Customer Question

I have a bush and lane Chicago upright parlor grand piano patented October 10th 1905 and it says strauch bros New York Columbia exposition 1893 . I've been told only two were made in the world. We have no intention of getting rid of it as we have an avid piano lover in our family. I'm just in awe and was curious for some background info :)

Hi, unfortunately there's no way to obtain specific background information on a particular piano as there is no central records database of such things and this company has been out of business for decades. I can help with an appraisal if that's what you need. Just let me know. Thanks!

You can't appraise a piano if you are saying there is no way of finding info on it
Expert:  Tyler, MM, AAGO replied 5 months ago.

I didn't answer your question. You CAN appraise a piano, I have done it thousands of times, without a specific history of it. An appraisal is done based on maker, age, size and condition among other things.
