Thanks for the question! The market for vintage pianos is one where supply exceeds demand currently and a Cable and Sons baby grand piano from circa 1914 would be worth $2,500 to $4,000 assuming that it is in good, playable condition. The price to restore depends on a variety of factors - a basic tuning and repair of an older baby grand piano is $150 to $250; more extensive restoration such as woodwork and replacing soundboards can often exceed the market value of the piano.
