The first label.... might possibly be this
The label is difficult to read in your picture, but this looks like what that says.
The second label is likely this
This may be a rare violin. I would bring someone who has experience to look at this instrument and who may know about this maker to determine its value. But just from what I found on the internet, this may be a nice find.

It has an additional interior tag that reads "reparirt von Wilhelm Fredel, Dresden. anno 18...."
That is probably the name of a luthier that repaired it at one time. My pawnshop purchase has a label that reads, “Repaired By Vern Vincent, Dec12, 1946 Canastota, NY
Unfortunately, that is the only label.
Do you have a picture of the violin itself? I am just curious what it looks like. Probably lovely.
They call me, “Mellow Cello”
Here it is, 15 minute drive from me, front and back the condition looks very good
