Friedrich August Heberlein


Recommended Posts

Looking for assistance in identifying origin of this violin. It is labeled Friedrich August Heberlein Leipzig 1917.

As you may already be aware, this is a distinction from the oval label cursive “Heberlin”. From my understanding, “Friedrich August Heberlin” was not a maker or relative of the famed Heberleins but just a name made by the distributing company, J.W. Jenkins and Sons started in 1912 according to one source. Could it be possible this 1917 violin was among the early years before they  changed to the oval “Heberlin” or is there no connection there to begin with?

In my research I was unable to find any more information online. Maybe there is something I missed or insight someone is willing to share. I’d also appreciate if you provide what you think an estimated value would be based off the photos provided. Thank you!
