58" high. Last tuned 20 years ago

Thanks for the info!
These old upright grand pianos are wonderful sounding instruments. The long strings and large sound board allow for a fuller and more developed sound. That said, because of the very old age and the high number of these types of pianos on the used market, prices stay pretty low. A piano has an average lifespan of 70 or so years before needing significant mechanical rebuilding. Also, annual tuning is highly recommended for these older pianos which helps keep them in good shape and allows a technician to diagnose any conditions that may become worse over time.
Based on your description of the instrument as well as the used piano market, I would recommend a selling range of approximately $150-$300 in a private sale. Best wishes!
