I have a Huntington upright that I am trying to find out if it has any value. It has an inscription to be delivered to the Paderewski Singing Society May 13 1900.
It is a beautiful piece.
Can anyone tell me if this is worth investigating?
Thank you..

A quick Google search produced this tidbit from antiquepianoshop.com (as an aside, their prices are generally not to be taken as credible...):

"In 1900 the famed pianist and composer Ignacy Paderewski endorsed The Huntington Piano Company. In addition to his commercial endorsements, Paderewski personally ordered a Huntington piano for the “Paderewski Singing Society” of Chicago. The Huntington Piano Company capitalized on this endorsement by applying labels with Paderewski’s photo and written endorsement inside their pianos for posterity."

So, unfortunately, it doesn't appear that your piano is all that unique. As a general rule, old, ornate uprights have little to no value.
