Customer Question
I have a violin...

I have a violin that looks over one hundred years old, you could read through the scene " Antonio Stradivarius .... 1722 how do I find an expert who can determine whether of not this violin is an original

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

The violin I have in my possession has written on the inside " Antonius stradiuarius cremonensis faciebat 1722, I need this violin to be appraise to see if it is an original

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?

It is in a case that looks like it is over one hundred years old and also it has two bows that looks very antique

Hello,

This is not an original rare Stradivarius. These labels were placed as a marketing scheme and the violins were produced around 1900 and mostly in Germany. These sell for $100 - $300 on average.
