Thanks. Please allow some time to look into this. Be advised serial records for this company may not exist and I wouldn't be able to find the year built in that case but I will check for them.

Thanks for your patience. Unfortunately, with this maker there are no remaining serial records to reference the age of your piano. There is only an entry indicating the company was established in 1883. I would agree with your assumption that this piano is likely from the early 20th century. Because of the very old age of the instrument, the value will have depreciated significantly. This is due to mechanical wear which occurs over time. Assuming your piano is still in good original condition mechanically, I would suggest a selling range today of approximately $400-$700 USD. Best wishes!

Please select a positive rating before leaving--this is the only way I'm credited for working on your appraisal. Thanks!
