Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry. Based on the photographs and description provided, the subject of this appraisal is Deagan Concert Model Vibraharp #145 circa 1933. Deagan built these vibraharp models between 1927 and 1939.
The piece appears in good used condition based on photographic examination, with some scratches noted. These pieces seldom come up in auction settings. In 2008, a similar piece performed well against its pre-auction estimate of $1,000 to $2,000, hammering for $1,900 in an online format. As the market for vintage professional-quality instruments remains relatively strong today, some appreciation would be expected over this price if at auction.
In consideration of the factors noted, a Fair Market Value (pre-auction estimate) of this piece would be estimated at $2,000 to $3,000.
