My name is ***** ***** I'm happy to help you with this question.
Your violin is a workshop copy of an Amati model, made in a factory in Germany around the turn of the 20th century. These were made for export, and are still considered goo student instruments today (not for concert performers). If your violin is in very good condition with very good tone, its current retail (replacement or insurance) value is approximately $1000. If you were to sell it, you could expect to get the fair market (private sale or auction) value of 40% of the retail amount, or approximately $400, depending on location and actual condition.
I hope this answer has been helpful to you.
