  1. The words are as seen inside the instrument. I'm no expert - actually I know hardly anything about violins - so am trying to work out if this is worth something or is a poor fake. Apart from the inscription inside, there is nothing else to say that it was made in 1716. I too can find no reference to anyone called Schloss who made violins, but the word is by and not bei. All suggestions welcome.
  2. This inscription was found inside a violin - can anyone help with what it means? Is Schloss a person or as I suspect a place in Saxony? 'Antonius Stradivarius by A A Schloss Saxony Anno 1716'
