Expert:  Tyler, MM, AAGO replied 1 year ago.

What is the height of the piano? What condition is it in? Do you mean "Weber"? If you have any photos to attach that would be helpful.

It's weser brothers. Serial number 97582. I put it at 5ft 5 inches. Not the greatest shape

Thanks for the info and photos. Unfortunately it appears this piano is in poor condition. The serial dates it back to 1920, and even though it is old, it could be in much better shape. There's not a restoration market or a used market for a piano like this. If it were in good original shape, I would recommend a selling value of a few hundred dollars. As is, I would say it has no value to a secondary buyer. Sorry for the bad news, but old uprights that have not been kept up do not fare well on the market that sees a wide availability of similar pianos. Best wishes
