So I was pasted down my grandmas violin from my dad and he doesn’t know much a bout the violin other then his mom gave it to him when he was little hoping he would learn violin. He never did. I have learned violin so he though he should give it to me. I started doing some research on the violin as it looks unique. I found some information online about the violins of hope. I read that these violins are from the Holocaust. I don’t know if someone in my family played it in the Holocaust or how someone in my family received the violin if it was from out of our family. My grandmas side of the family ( my dads side ) came to America from Germany. I know I have a lot of German in my ancestry as I do a lot of ancestry.com and I did 23 and me as well. Doesn’t anyone have any more information on the violins of hope, maybe how many are them are there ? What there value is ? The only marking inside the F hole is “ Germany “ no serial number or any other words. The violins case has a label “ George Barton music company quality Instruments Minneapolis Minn “ so I don’t know if there’s potentially a place the violin was boughten from after the Holocaust or if it’s just where the violin was bought from or if the case is even relevant to the violin or not I don’t know. But any information on the violin and history to it , value , answers . I would love some more information.
Good Day from Argentina to everyone! I have a question worthy of this wise Community... What do you know about violins with this shape? How much would this violin go for? And finally an ignorant question I assume myself: Does oil varnish ever get this dark naturally or is it completely deliberate? "Presumably German around 1930s - the label is in our opinion not authentic. Please listen to the video/soundfile & click on the image to see all detailed XXL photos below as part of the description!Finely carved scroll and accurately inlaid purfling. This beautiful violin shows no open cracks or open seams. Medium to fine grained spruce front and beautiful 1-piece maple back.

I´m done with Suzuki level 1 on a cheap chinese violin and Luthier Violin making is becoming more interesting by the minute! Thank you in advance, The Argentine Schindler
