  1. Mr. Brown and Mr. Saunders, thank you for your responses. They are helpful. The 1880ish time frame fits with the history of the instrument as I know it. Thankfully, the bridge is in the case, I just didn't take a picture of it. It seems crazy to me that people would put out these copies and falsely label them, but then again, I imagine patent and copyright laws were scarce in the 1880s! If anyone else cares to chime in on a recommendation for restoration, that would be welcomed by me. Tom
  2. I am in Chicago and want to get this instrument restored. The earliest ancestor to which I can trace it back is my 2nd great grandfather who lived from 1827 to 1915. I realize it may be a "knock off" but I want to have it restored for sentimental reasons. Any recommendations? Any general thoughts or comments on the instrument? Thank you in advance. Tom
