Violin with markings I have not been able to identify

Hello everyone,

This is my first post here.  I need helping in identifying the possible origins/manufacturer, etc. of an old violin.  I don't think this violin is worth much, if anything.  The violin belonged to my grandfather, who played it for most of his life.  When he passed away in 1973 the violin became mine, and I have been playing it ever since.  Soon my daughter will move up to a full sized violin and it would be fun if she could use this one as well.  I have always been curious about the history of this violin, so any information will help.  I am guessing it was purchased from a catalog, (possibly Sears), between 1900-1915, but those are merely guesses. This violin has a beautiful sound, and, by all indications (varnish, purfling, etc.) it is of decent quality.  I would just love to know its story, and I don't care about how much it is (not) worth.  The inside label appears to be gray in my photos, but that's because of my flashlight.  The label is brown and its edges sort of "melt into" the surrounding wood.

Thank you for any help you can provide,
