Hello all, I purchased a Lowendall violin today from a lady whose mother bought it in Berlin in 1929. Came in an old wood case (her mother has this made for the violin) and with an old, presumably original, bow which has mother of pearl insert and is silver tipped, quite thick and stiff to my eyes. Is it worth getting it rehaired as hair is mostly gone now? Violin has a label inside saying 'Made in Berlin. Special Copy of Antonius Stradivarius' along with the wreath with L inside to the right. I have attached links to some pics. Any information regarding what it may be worth or how many were made etc... would be much appreciated. I bought it for myself, as I have not played for years and wish to start playing again. I am curious though. Had it restrung today and it sounds really good to me (which is all that matters really - I did not pay much for it). Thanks in advance for any replies!
