Thanks for the info and photos! The piano was built in 1907 based on the serial. It looks to have a lovely finish, though what's inside the piano is more important and influences value more. Old pianos are generally low in value because the thousands of mechanical parts have suffered deterioration due to age. Restored pianos are worth more because this condition has been improved. Based on the used market and your description, I would recommend a selling range of approximately $400-$650. Best wishes!
