Customer Question
Appraisal for a Gulbransen...

Appraisal for a Gulbransen refurbished baby grand piano with butterfly lid, (not built as a player piano)

Expert's Assistant: 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. Tell us what else you do know and the Musical Instrument Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

Believed to be grandmother's piano originally, mother born in 1934 serial number not found, looks to be mid-1920's. Dark mahogany finish with matching bench. Looks to be faux Art Nouveau design.

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Musical Instrument Appraiser should know?

The piano finish looks very good, but it is not the original finish.
