mbolen Posted November 27, 2022 Report Share Posted November 27, 2022 I recently picked up an old violin from the local classifieds, and I was hoping for some additional information on it. The front looks a little “meh” to me, but I bought it because the back looked so pretty. I don’t know much about old violins, but my best guess is that it is an early 1900’s German violin. There is a printed label on the inside that says “Nicolaus Amatus, fecit in Cremona 16”, but I assume that’s just a generic label they put in it at the time. Any ideas which city, violin shop, and or age? It has a very nice sound, and it’s very lovely to play. I am teaching my wife to play, so this will be her violin for now. If I had to put a retail value on it, I’d guess somewhere around $2,500? Is that anywhere close? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
