Bontempi Piano Information?
How much is a bontempi Piano?. I have tried searching the net and had no luck so any help would be appreciated.
It is not a childrens piano. Its a pretty big proper looking piano, about the size of a two seater sofa. It has been lying about in the garag for ages and was wondering if its worth anything.

Bontempi is (was) an Italian toy manufacturer. They produced a gazillion chord organs in the 60s. I don't know of any "pianos", but expect them to be similar to the toy pianos you would find today; a simple action striking tuned steel plates.
... it might be collectible, but it isn't a musical instrument.

I'm not sure why the Y!A filter insisted this was a 'classical' matter for little toy pianos, unless the mere word 'piano' did the trick... :-)
A simple Google search here gives me 15,000+ returns so I'll leave you those to look through, though they will be Europe-centric because of my locality. If you repeat the same search string where you are, they will be tailored to that locality instead.
All the best,
