Hi, my name is*****'m a certified appraiser and I'd be happy to help.

Has the piano ever been rebuilt?

How recently has it been conditioned and tuned?

Hi Jennifer. How you doing?
Never been rebuilt from what I can see and have been told.
Last tuned about 8-10 yrs ago.

Unfortunately, upright pianos from this period have very little resale value. This is not a maker with any particular cachet on the collectible market, which complicates it. On the high side, you might be able to get $500.00. But unfortunately, there are usually many listings of people willing to give away upright pianos to anyone who will move them, which makes them very hard to sell.

Many older upright pianos wind up in the dump, as it can be hard to even find a free taker. They are expensive to move and retune/maintain, and few people have the room.

I'm very sorry for the disappointing news.

Jennifer
