Hello,

I am looking to sell my Ronisch piano. Serial number is 29502.

How much do you think this piano is worth? Where would I go to sell this/how would I go about selling it (Melbourne, Aus)? We got it as a sort of hand me down when I started learning piano when I was younger. That only lasted a few years and now looking to sell as we are moving.

Thank you for your help!

What age is it. Also, what condition - is it regularly tuned etc.

I don't know what age it is at all. We've no idea. Thought serial number might help someone to answer that Q.
Honestly wouldn't have been tuned in about ten years it just sits in our dining room. Aesthetically it's in wonderful condition.

Check out:

http://www.besbrodepianos.co.uk/pianoserialnumber/ronisch.htm

I have no idea of the accuracy, though.

My mother had an almost 20 year old Ronisch till early this year when she bought a new piano. The new piano dealer was not prepared to trade the piano - mentioned "a couple of hundred at the most", and suggested she give it away. She gave it to a friend who had a much worse piano.

You could try e-bay.

Yes according to that website it is 1890-1900 era.
I'll keep looking around.
Thank you!

Your piano is from 1899. Rönisch was a premier maker of pianos in those days. If your piano were re-conditioned, I am sure it would be a killer instrument. Alas, any upright of that era does not fetch much when offered for sale. I picked up a beautiful 56" tall Rönisch a few months ago for a few hundred.
