Hi, welcome to Just Answer and thanks for your question!

Your violin is definitely reproduction as many individual makers and companies over the past several hundred years have copied the style of Stradivarius. All Stradivarius violins have been accounted for. That does not mean your instrument has no worth. Since the style of this great maker was copied many copies can be of good quality. The best advice I can give you for a violin like this is to have it inspected in person. A local luthier or musical instrument shop (that deals in band and orchestra instruments) can give you a good idea of the age, quality and value by seeing it in person. I do hope this information helps and wish you the best!
