Customer Question

I have rescued a violin out of a family menbers attic.
The case it's in, is an old wood GSB case.
The violin itself has only one label in side. It says, Repaired by E Riley & Co. ,*****,New York
It looks very old. It needs some restoration.
This is all the info I can find on it.
If i need to take pics of it i can do it this week. I need to know what kind of profiles to take and where to send them to.
