  1. I inherited my fathers violin
    The label in side reads

    Joh. Bapt. Schweitzer
    Reichers violin shoppe
    Wm. h. Reichers, mgr.

    Not in great condition…does it have any value

    • Hi Sylvia, sorry for the delay in replying. Your ebay violin is quite interesting as it may be genuine since there are very few violins with this label. However, some ebay sellers do look for lesser known labels to put in their unlabelled antique violins. Which is why I can’t say if your violin is genuine without seeing the violin personally. The Universal Dictionary of Violin and Bow Makers by William Henley, says the following: “CELANI, CONSTANTINO. Born 1869. Brother and pupil of Emilio. Worked at Ascoli Piceno. Ran a violin making school there, 1940. Won many gold medals. Produced 250 violins, also violas and cellos up to the year 1949. Retired (in 81st year) to Monticelli. Decorated with the Order of San-Maria. Strad and Amatese modelling–fine workmanship, well chosen woods, and a beautifully transparent varnish of golden yellow shade.” I recommend that you take your violin to a reputed violin seller and ask their opinion on its authenticity. There opinion should be free if you are not asking for an appraisal of its value. I don’t recommend paying for a certificate of provenance or authenticity. Let me know how it works out. Thanks for your question.
