At the recent PTG convetion I asked members about the quality and inherent value of a Schleicher & Sons piano. Apparently the brand is not well known. I have a client who is looking at restoration options, hence the interest in the instrument's value. Does anyone have comments to offer in this regard? This one is a full size upright (52" sn 17838), and seems to be from the 20s, based on a general assessment of cabinet features/style. What I'm looking for is a top value if a comprehensive restoration took place.

Pierce Atlas shows they made pianos from 1909 - 1931. Like hundreds of American manufacturers the Depression did them in. This is not a brand I would recommend investing in.
