What does this mean?

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry. Based on the photographs and description provided, the subject of this appraisal is an upright electric player piano manufactured by Chas. S. Norris of Boston in approximately 1920.

The piece has been painted white in a prior amateur restoration, unfortunately, and many components such as hinges were not removed during painting.

The piece remains in working condition according to the owner. Electric player pianos seldom come up in major traditional auction settings, as most pieces sell within local markets due to their size and subsequent difficulty for transport. In as-is condition, the value of the piano would be estimated at $500 to $1,000.

The owner lists approximately 100 scrolls with the piano. Assuming the scrolls are in good condition, the value of each is estimated at approximately $5.

In consideration of the factors noted, a Fair Market Value (pre-auction estimate) of this collection would be estimated at $1,000 to $1,500.
