When we purchased our home it "came" with a Holland Piano Company player piano. Origional to the house I'm told. I can find no information on this Co. other than what is on the label, $750. new with 10 year warrenty! It is appears to be in excellent condition and I suspect will play if cleaned and tuned. Does anyone know of, or how to get more info on this company. I want to know the value(not to sell), for insurance and possible restoration to its proper condition.
Any leads would be greatly appreciated!

Holland Piano co. shut it's doors in 1931.
It would be impossible to put a value on the piano without seeing it. My guess though is that it has not ever had any significant work done on it because the cost involved in restoring an old player would prevent the owner from leaving it. The best I can do is to tell you how old it is. If you will give me the serial #--you will have to raise the lid and look for a 5 or 6 digit number. It is usually somewhere around the tuning pins. Also if you could email me some photos I could at least get a general idea of the shape it is in.

Greg, Thanks for responding. The serial # is 26752. I think the piano might play if cleaned, i can not detect any air laeks, I am however a complete amature at this! At any rate, I will send the photos to the address you provided. Again, thanks in advance for ANY insight you can give me.
