Customer Question

I have an old upright piano made by Dusinberre and co. of New York, serial no. 4951. The cabinet is in very good condition. It needs tuning of course. I know Dusinberre pianos are extremely rare (can't even find a picture of one). Is it of any significant valve? Ernestine

Hi, thanks for your question. Can you attach photos showing the inside and outside of it? Also, keep in mind that just because a pianos maker is rare today has no impact on value. Pianos are valued based on condition rather than collectible antiques.
