Using a flashlight I could see the words inside the violin as follows…On the top of the printed label, it says…..Reproduced by Alfred Zapf……below that it says…Reproduction of an Antonius Stradivarius……below that it says……Cremona 1721.

It says “Tested & Approved”. This Violin is 286 years old and dis-colored, which should be able to be corrected by re-finishing. The Strings on the Violin and Bow are broken. My small town doesn’t have the Professionals capable of restoring this Violin. This Violin has been handed down through my family for many generations. My Dad received this family violin in the early 1940’s and it was very old then. From what I understand, a Stradivarius was re-produced in the 1920’s but this isn’t one of them. It is stored in a NEW Violin Case. BE SURE YOU WANT THIS VIOLIN BEFORE YOU BID, AS IT IS NON RE-TURNABLE.
