Hi everyone, I am looking for info on a violin maker named C.P. Kellogg from Belchertown, Massachusetts. I just acquired a violin that sounds great but I cannot seem to find a lot about it. It is full 14 inches long, one piece back, seems like maple cut on the slab. Purfling is real although it looks a bit like it was done by an old man in some areas (it is a bit wobbly in the back and in the upper left corner it seems a little too straight going into the corner) and f-holes seem to be a little asymmetrical (the right is higher and narrow on the wings) maybe after a the Stradivari pattern from around 1717 onwards. It has a few repaired cracks on the top and bottom rib. There is not a paper label per se inside but a burnt brand instead with : C.P.KELLOGG BELCHERTOWN,MASS Any info on either the violin or its maker would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.
