Hi all, I'm new here but noticed a thread on different types of Peretzschner violins and didn't find any info that helped me. I'll add pictures of my violin and it's label and some history of it (or what I was told when I bought it). Bought from Scotty Jackson (was well respected luthier when he was still with us) in Gainesville, FL 10/2010. He mentioned it being very old and I believe he said how he knew that was (please be gracious with my memory) because the label was in German vs English. This violin was also played by a young violinist Michael Province for a long while before I'd bought it. He used it when he performed on The Opera Show (not that it means much to me, but it may to someone). From the pics and history I'm aware of (I could be wrong too), could you all possibly help tell me what I have here: how old? Rarity?How much I could realistically sell it for?

Hi Lorenf - first, welcome to this forum.

I'm pretty sure you won't get a reliable date of value for any violin based on photographs. You need to take it to an expert that you trust.

One thing to remember is that it doesn't take a lot of effort to put a label inside a violin, so you can never be sure if the label is original or genuine (not that I'm saying your violin isn't, just that only an expert will be able to tell).
