Hello tlc,

By chance I was just checking on Bent pianos myself. My sister had one. What follows is from "bluebookofpianos.com"

GEORGE P. BENT CO

This name was one of the most widely known in connection with American pianos. This name was established in 1870. Geo.P.Bent pianos and player-pianos, including grands, are instruments of unchallenged quality. The famous "Crown" piano has won international fame before the Gen. P. Bent Co. acquired it. The factory and offices were located in Louisville, Ky. The instruments were of the same fine character and tone quality for which the Crown has long been noted. Pianos, player pianos and grand pianos are manufactured. This name was one of the most widely known pianos in connection with American pianos.

1900 - 15000 1910 - 50000 1920 - 72300 1928 - 94000
1905 - 33000 1915 - 64000 1927 - 89000 1929 - 98000

George P. Bent Winter & Co. (Aeolian)
1960 - 364200 1966 - 397700 1972 - 420500 1978 - 440000
1961 - 370700 1967 - 401500 1973 - 424900 1979 - 444000
1962 - 376900 1968 - 405200 1974 - 430300 1980 - 446900
1963 - 383100 1969 - 407500 1975 - 433400 1981 - 449700
1964 - 387900 1970 - 410900 1976 - 436900 1982 - 452400
Piano values will vary with age, type of wood, style and condition.

Hope this gives you something to go on.

Donald
