Can you help identify this violin?

Recommended Posts

I agree with Jacob that this is probably a JTL violin, or other Mirecourt trade - however, "Breton" labelled/stamped violins are generally lower grade than this, and don't often have inked scrolls. Bretons were made by or for a number of French workshops/factories including Laberte and JTL, with a huge range in quality from poor to OK. Your "Amatius" seems overall rather superior, nice elongated corners, pretty varnish and a neat scroll.
