We have "inherited" an upright piano with Lichtenstein printed on the underside of the keys cover. The piano is in need of a large amount of TLC with several broken strings, hammers & is quite definitely in need of a tune.
The only identifiers are the numbers 5296 on the piece of wood that anchors the strings & the number 57514 on the back of the hammer assembly which I think is called the "action" - apologies for my lack of knowledge of piano construction!
My wife says she's interested in learning to play the piano, however with the piano in such disrepair - my question is - is it worth the cost of getting the piano up to scratch.

If you find old references or links on this site to pianogen.org, they should refer to pianohistory.info
I appreciate you can't give me an accurate quote, I'll need a tuner for that as you suggest. I'm just looking for a gut feel really to see if its worth the effort.
Are the piano's still made?
Do you know the rough dates the piano's are/were manufactured?
What quality were they - budget - low end market or better?
