The value will depend more on cosmetic and physical condition than the age (within reason), It's also dependent on your particular market. c/intact your local piano store to get a idea what comparable pianos are selling for.

I have a rosewood parlor grand upright piano made by Ernest Gabler and Brother serial #34748, manufactured for WJ Dyer and Bro of Minneapolis. Can you shed any light of the year of its manufacture?


Remove the middle C key to see date of manufacture written in pencil. May also show repairs and tuning dates.

In 1883, Emil & Ernest Gabler went into partnership to form the hugely successful company of 'Ernest Gabler & Brother'. During the 19th Century, Gabler was known for building extravagant and expensive pianos, including square grands and uprights. By the turn-of-the-century, the company was fairly successful and was building a complete line of baby grands and player pianos as well. In the early 20th Century, the firm also manufactured Faber and Baus brand pianos. All Gabler pianos we have restored in our shop have been of superior quality. Gabler went out of business in about 1932 due to the Great Depression.

The Ronisch piano has long been a favourite among piano teachers due to its fine, clear tone and highly consistent manufactured quality. Anyone looking to get a Ronisch is advised to look for instruments made before the second World War, as the original factory in Dresden, Germany was destroyed by allied planes in the latter stages of the war.
All of the manufacturing equipment was lost.
The factory was re-established in Leipzig after the war, but has never manufactured pianos of the same tonal beauty as did the original.

Carl Ronisch, was one of the foremost pioneers of piano-building in his time. He was first to use a full cast-iron plate in the piano, employing five struts and completely covering the wrest-plank (pin block), which for the first time, allowed a high-tension scale.
This is considered the beginning of the use of full cast-metal plates and is today, standard in the industry.

Ronisch instruments have won gold medals in the world exhibitions in Sydney, Amsterdam, Melbourne, Chicago and Paris.

Hi Robyn:
serial 10305
This was one of the original pianos made by this company in 1904. The serial number is the determining factor in telling a piano's age.

The worth rests on the piano's viability, configuration, and age.

Old uprights are generally worth little, especially if they are not serviceable. The furniture value is secondary.

If your piano is in perfect condition, inside and out, the value would top out around 200.00, USD.

What you have there is a typical upright piano, which more than likely has more furniture value than instrument value.

Age is not good in the piano world and pianos deteriorate year by year whether they are played or not.

Are you using this piece as furniture, or instrument?

We bought this upright piano for our daughter to learn on but I can't seem to find any info on it. Serial number 23930. Any info would be fabulous. Thank you.


Remove the front of the piano. Remove the middle C key complete from it mounting pin. You may find the production date and its full service history written in pencil on the side of that key. A piano tuner told me this after I told him that I had removed all the keys to clean them and I was surprised to see the whole history. It said it was standard practice.

I was just given a Sturz bros of ny upright piano...the serial number is 7015...is there any info you can give me? Such as age? Possible value? Any history at all would be a great help! I'm attaching a pic...


I don't have much. The Pierce Piano Atlas states that they were formed in NYC in 1871 and changed their name to Sturz & Sons in 1885. Address was 142 Lincoln.

I'm guessing that this was built close to the name change. So, 1880-1885. This is strictly a guess since there is no way to find out how many pianos they built in a year.

Here is an ad page from an unknown date that states just the opposite. It states that Sturz & Sons was changed to Sturz Bros., so I have no idea when it was built. Pre-1900 I'd bet. You can rarely find the date on one of the end keys. You have to pull the key out and look at the side.
