You do not mention where you are, but if you were here (Austria) you would need a „Nachlassgericht“ for that. They would (quite rightly) say that they have no idea about violins, and appoint a „beeideter Sachverständiger“ (sworn in expert) which would as lightly as not be me. I would then tell the „Gericht“ (court) that it is a low quality Bohemian School violin from the end of the 19th C. in need of repair, and of little or no commercial value at all, and write you a bill for my services that excedes the value of the violin by quite a lot. My private advice on the side would be to shove it in the skip with the other junk, and pretend it had never existed.

There's a small chance that the bow is of some value, the lapping looks a bit interesting - but probably it's of the same level as the violin. Just not to forget about a look, when you have got it.

Nothing "unusual" about that asset at all.  Go look on eBay.  :lol:

Jacob nailed the provenance, and probably the economics as well.

The attribution is unquestionably a classic "Attic Strad" ..........:D

It's a pity so much of Aristotle is lost.  I'm sure he would have had a lot to say about them.  :ph34r::lol:
