Oboe/Value of a Loree Oboe



Oboe w/Serial #
Oboe w/Serial #  
I have a 36 year old L'oree oboe with a serial #DN43.
Unfortunately I am in the process of selling it and would like to have at least a general idea of it's value. Also, if you are aware of any potential buyers or suggestions where and how to sell I would be extremely grateful. The oboe itself is in excellent condition only the case itself has a few waterspots and also the cover is in better than fair shape. Some photos are attached as well.
So appreciate your time and help.

Hi Heidi, thank you for your email. The Loree is worth between $2500-$3000 depending on the condition of the silver, condition of the bore, and if there are any crack repairs or not.
I do have a consignment service and if you wish to email me directly at I can provide you more details. If you wish to sell it on your own, you might try ebay or craigs list. Happy to answer any additional questions you may have.  The photos were very helpful. Sincerely, hannah
