Hello dear friends, I don't know if I'm in the right place. And sorry for my bad English. I was looking for information about my grandmothers piano on internet. But there was nearly zero information about how old is it and how much is it worth. Can someone help me with this one?
Piano is made from Ivory and (Red wood?).

According to this link the Winkelmann was a nice piano, and well regarded in the region of Germany where they were manufactured. That said, it's not unusual to find glowing commentary about old makes, and I suspect it often comes from old promotional materials and such.

The general consensus on this site seems to be that an older piano's value is tied more to its condition than to its name. On the other hand, the name may have some value in Lower Saxony.

Retsacnal,

Thank you for providing the link to Malcolm Harvey's article. I can assure you that he bases his assessment of Zeitter % Winkelmann pianos on personal experience.

The 135 cm Zeitter & Winkelmann upright from the 1920s that I know has a splendid tone. I would agree with others who have put their instruments from that era on a par with Grotrian Steinweg.

So as article says "Winkelmann" pianos is rare enough (exported one's). That's why there's no information about Winkelmann pianos, and lot of information about Zeitter & Winkelmann. I wonder how old is It. Since It's rare, but price is unknown, I don't think selling It for 500-1000$ is a good decision.
