Thank you for your patience!

Eavestaff pianos were made in London until 1983 and also made this line called "minipiano". Their serial numbers are primarily six digits under the 200,000 mark. Your piano was likely built in the mid 20th century just based on appearance in the photos. This is a small spinet type of instrument, meaning it is very short and has smaller strings and soundboard than a larger upright. This results in a less than desirable sound quality, though it does save vertical space.

To find current value it is important to consider the above factors as well as condition and age. In the current used piano market today, I would recommend this piano be valued at approximately $300-$650 USD in a private sale. Best wishes!
