Siegfried's Special Copy of Antonius Stradivarius

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I recently acquired a violin that has a light blue label inside that reads

"Siegfried's special copy of Antonius Stradivarius"

Made in Germany

It does not have any other information as to what Stradivari copy it is or anything else. Does anyone else have a similar violin? Also, is there any way of telling how old it is? I'm guessing that it was made in the early 1900's, because it says "Made in Germany", and that was after the trademark law the U.S. passed in the late 1800's which forced makers to reveal country of origin. Also, it doesnt say made in Western Germany, so it was made before the partition of Germany.. Any info on its worth? The violin doesn't seem to look like a truly special copy, because it appears to be a bit rough in construction..

According to Henley, it is Eugene Siegfried, and he worked in Berlin from 1902 to 1930.

The label says exactly what you said there!.

Sorry I couldn't be of more help,

Holy Viola!

Has anyone heard of Siegfried violins, or how to go about finding info on him? I can only tell that it was made in early 1900's, based on the looks..

Maybe Karl Roy's partner?
