Customer Question

I would like to get an price estimate on a Briggs Piano that has been in my family since it was new 1800's. I've been told it came over to the west coast (Portland, Oregon) from Boston on covered wagon. It is black with ivory keys never been re-painted, still sounds great. However, I don't think it has 88 keys, it has 85. Any input would be appreciated. Thanks you, Carol

Hi Carol, do you need information on its value? If so, could you include the serial number (found inside the piano's top) as well as when it was last tuned?

Hi, just checking to see if you still need help with this?
