Hi! My name is XXXXX XXXXX X am pleased to assist you. Could you provide an image for review and note overall condition, paying special attention to ANY visible flaws?
Got them, thanks!
You have a late 19th to early 20th century COPY of a Stradivari, not an original...it was simply made in the style of one from circa 1721. Could you please tell me, word for word, line for line, exactly what is on the tag visible through the f-hole?
Thank you...that is a generic paper tag which was placed inside the body of violins manufactured as a general rule in Germany or Italy from around 1890 to 1920. Most will retail in the $175 to $400 range pending actual condition and demand. Here are several examples which have been listed on eBay, for examples. Please note that green numbers indicate completed sales and red means no sale. Best, Will
