Found this Giuseppe Guarnerius Fecit Cremona. IS it worth anything?

Hello all,

There is this fiddle that was found in the basement. I never checked the label/maker as I am new to playing and the instrument in general. My friend checked it last night and freaked out thinking it was a very antique and rare fiddle. 

Can anyone check the photos and advise me whether to take it to get appraised or not?

The name is giuseppe guarnerius fecit cremona

I believe it is a German instrument. Based on the limited photos I'm thinking maybe late 19th century Mittenwald, a bit better than a typical basement find. Depending on condition it probably has some value, but nothing close to a Guarnari. Better pics will help. Was there a bow?
