It is quite nice. Krueger apprenticed under Steinway in NY and then started his own company; it was bought out by Kroehler and Campbell and they continued to produce the pianos until the 1950's.

We have hired people to play for parties and it was a grand sound in the house. Going to miss that. Daughter did not keep up her piano lessons so we do not need and no longer have the space.

Someone in Atlanta is going to get a good deal although we are considering donating it to a school here.

You might consider donating your beautiful piano to the Educational Foundation in your community. Most foundations of this type are a 501 (c) (3) approved non profit organization. The foundation could sell your piano and use the proceeds to fund scholarships, etc. As a former high school administrator, I would hesitate to place your beautiful grand piano in a high school music program out of fear for the piano itself. Hopefully the school you are considering has an appreciation for such a fine and beautiful instrument.

You might want to begin by trying to find the value and history in Pierce:
https://www.searchppa.com/product/one-day-membership/

It's hard to sell old stuff these days. Pianos especially, because they're big, expensive and they don't always age well. But worst of all, old pianos with ivory keys pose serious legal hurdles you need to know about. If the keys are ivory, you'll have to be able to prove that it was manufactured prior to 1975 and supply the appropriate documentation to the purchaser. If the ivory was ever repaired, there may be no way to transfer ownership legally, because you would need to document the repair materials. It's illegal on a federal level to transfer ownership or move it across state lines without proper documentation, and some states have even tougher regs. An undocumented piano can be seized by state authorities or US Fish & Wildlife.

Selling a piano is a challenge, as moving one is a project not for the faint of heart. My dad simply included the family upright when he sold the house. My wife bought a baby grand in NY with a cracked pin block that we ended up putting out on the street (minus the lid that I turned into a desk) in pieces. It was gone in 10 minutes. We have another baby grand she bought to practice voice with, and whenever the discussion of downsizing is raised, the piano is never mentioned....although my great grandfather's partners desk is almost always the first item raised as needing to go away.
Big furniture is a commitment!
