Hi,
My name is***** have been dealing in and appraising Antiques for over 40 years, and I can help you with this. This a circa 1900-1920 copy of an Amati family violin. The labels weren't meant to deceive but say that the violin was made to the specification of the original. In many cases these are fine violins selling on average of $800-1200.

Thank you,

Wayne
