I have a Wurlitzer serial number 232113... want to know its value before I sell it
JA: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Tell us what else you do know and the Musical Instrument Appraiser will be able to better assist you.
Customer: My parents purchased it in Okinawa for my sister back in the fifties. It is made of foreign wood and bamboo
JA: I love the notion of my brother's old guitar having a history and belonging to someone famous. Maybe you have something valuable or historical. Let's find out. Is there anything else important you think the Musical Instrument Appraiser should know?
Customer: It is an upright with a matching bench

my sister took piano lesson fir 16 years befor she left for has sat in our moms house since
Thanks for the info. This piano was built in 1942 based on the serial you provided. At 3' tall this is considered a spinet piano, which was the smallest and most economically priced model at the time. Spinets are no longer made since taller pianos allow a better sound and key action.
Based on your description of the instrument and considering the used market, I would recommend a selling range of approximately $600-$900 in a private sale. Best wishes!
