The violin may be worth more to a history buff or antiques collector. Antonius Stradivarius Cremonensis faciebat anno ? Have you found a violin with the label "Antonius Stradivarius Cremonensis"? Keep cool. In the past some restorers have stuck labels genuine or forged inside instruments of various origins and there has been a proper business in labels, apart from the selling of violins.

There have also been cases of old-time violin makers who would put the names of other contemporary makers on their own violins. Factories in the late 19th and early 20th centuries also labeled instruments as such by the thousands. Nowadays, no violin expert would judge the value of a violin by its label. Labels such as "Antonius Stradivarius Cremonensis Faciebat Anno 17", followed or not by circles with crosses, initials or other particular signs are made in series to be completed before being stuck on the instrument: actually " Anno 17" shows only the first two numerals of any year of the 18th century.

A complete label should read " Anno " or " Anno ", or at least an year of the 18th century. However, if you wish to learn more about the quality of the instrument you should take it to a violin maker, who will let you know if it is a good quality instrument. He may not be able to give you details of the period or school, but will be able to tell you if it was made by a good craftsman or on an assembly line.

The addresses of violin makers, under the headings of States, can be found in the Reports of magazines for enthusiasts such as "Strad" or "String". If you so wish, you can have a first opinion from the expert violin makers of the Cremona School of Violin Making Scuola di Liuteria sending photographs or colour slides taken in the most professional manner, with shots of the whole instrument and of its details. The evaluation may not be infallible to value an instrument is not the same thing as valuing its photo , but it is possible to get a general indication.
