Welcome to MN Tantanus. Looks to be a factory/trade instrument about early 2oth century .... probably German but there are people on this forum with much more expertise than I that may be able to identify your violin :)

After perusing the photos..

I agree with Mystic as to the violins origin.. and also would like to say welcome to this forum. The fingerboard appears to have a bit of wear..so must have been played a fair amount at some point.
