My name is ***** ***** I'm happy to help.
Your violin was made in Germany around the turn of the 20th century. Several factories operating in the towns of Markneukirchen, Mittenwald and Klingenthal turned out these instruments by the thousands, primarily for export. They are still considered to be good student instruments today.
If your violin is in very good condition with very good tone, its current retail (replacement or insurance) value is approximately $800. If you were to sell it, you could expect to get the fair market (private sale or auction) value of approximately 40% of the retail amount, or $320.
I hope this answer has been helpful to you Janice.
