Thanks for the information. There is VERY little information concerning Mansfield pianos, which is a big indicator of the lack of interest in this company's instruments these days. Serial number records are also almost non-existent. It appears that your piano was most likely made in the area of 1925-30. Piano values are based, first and foremost, on condition and older pianos are in fair to poor condition simply due to the age of the mechanical parts. In great condition I would value your piano in the $1,000-1,400 range. Most likely though it is probably closer to the $600-$1,000 range. If you are interested in selling I would recommend having somebody come out to appraise it in person. They would be able to give a more specific figure based on seeing the condition and knowing your local market. I hope this helps! Best wishes!
