Hi, thank you for your question! I have completed thousands of musical instrument appraisals and will be happy to help with yours.
Chickering pianos were once comparable to those of Steinway but after financial difficulties early in the 20th century, they were combined with other companies to form the American Piano Company in 1908. Their pianos have still been of good quality since then, however not as high as they previously were. Considering the age of the piano, there is a significant amount of depreciation. Pianos decline in value as they wear over time. Based on the age, maker, size, described condition and used market, I would suggest a selling range of approximately $4,000-$4,800 in a private sale. Best wishes!
