Hello,
My name is XXXXX XXXXX I'll be pleased to help you with this question.

Thanks - I'm happy to help you.

Your Alfred Zapf violin is not a reproduction of a Stradivarius. It simply has a label that is a tribute to the great violinmaker Antony Stradivari.

Your violin was made in Markneukirchen, Germany in the 1930s. There were many factories working there at the time to produce violins for export to the US, where many were sold via mail order catalogs such as Sears Roebuck. They are still considered to be good student violins.

If your Zapf violin is in excellent condition, its current retail (replacement) value is approximately $400.
