  1. I have the same violin (I believe). My violin was my great grandfather's who immigrated from Sweden, but who was also a professor at Northwestern in Chicago. There were many musical geniuses in our family heritage, including the first woman symphony conductor in Chicago (his sister, and she also played this violin). Interested to find out if he purchased the violin here in the states and it is a replica that is from the 1800's or if it could possibly be original and he put it into a case that was made in the 1800's during his immigration over to the states. Any advise on where to go from here would be appreciated. The violin is stamped and then what looks like burned in by hand "65" in the 1665 part . .
