My grandmother was at an auction and saw a violin which she then purchased for me. I took the violin to see if it was worth being fixed, which it was not. Even though it's not worth anything I was untreated in learning the history behind it because it seemed older. The label said "Antonius Stradivarius cremonenisis facibat anno 17" and the label also said copy but it looked like someone treys to burn that part off. I looked online but could not find a violin with a label like it, so I was wondering if any one knew any thing about the brand or history of this copy.
- The company logo is a circle that says MADE IN THE U.S.A, with a large V in the circle with a line a bit farther than half way up the V with a J C in the line and in the bottom part of the V there is a C that looks like it was stretched with a circle in the middle of it. I wasn't sure where to ask this question, and this seemed like this category would be closest, I hope you don't mind.
