Hello there, I am thinking about buying this violin. It carries the label of a reputable late 19th century french maker, but a knowledge violin friend thought it to be a bit younger. What do you think? Any opinion much appreciated, thanks!
I have a 4/4 violin with a label that reads, "Joh.Bapt.Schweitzer fecit ad forman Antonii Stradiuarii Pestini 18__" ~ it is dark brown in color and looks very old. It also has a very skinny neck. I can't upload pictures/don't know how - and i know the lack of pictures make it hard to really tell anything but any advice would be greatly appreciated. I was told that it has a $5000 value but I personally would like to know if it is real or a copy
