Hi everyone, I recently came into possession of my great grandad's violin. It has no label inside and I was wondering if anyone could help Identify a likely age or place of origin for this instrument. While I have some experience in lutherie, I have little to no knowledge of violin making. It is a family story that my grandfather brought this instrument from Germany or Poland as a kid in the early 1900s, but the bow is marked "Japan." I know the bow and violin could have been made independently of each other, but what does the make of the violin suggest. Thanks, Gus
