Thanks for the photos and additional information. In examining the photos, it appears the piano is in better than average condition. The woodworking is nice and adds some character to the cabinet. Post 1900 uprights were more often simple in design so this one has some nice features. This would really be called an "upright grand" rather than an "upright concert grand" as the latter type of piano doesn't exist--The cabinet would have to be 3 feet taller. Considering your description, the photos and the used piano market, I would recommend a selling range of approximately $450-$750 in a private sale. Best wishes!
