Hello.

I am a high school student who plays in the school orchestra. And i know a bit about violins. Also this one, because i have one.

Mine says exactly the same thing in it. The violin is a copy of Violins made by Giovan Paolo Maggini in the 1600. There are thousands of these violins. The were made circa 1900 in Germany. I bought mine for $2,500. I suggest you go to a String instrument shop (violin, viola, cello, bass, not guitar), or go to a music shop that knows a thing or two about violins and get it appraised.

Please email me if you decide to appraise it. I want you make sure i wasnt giped. lol

Hello,
I have a violin that was purchased at auction that says the following:

Giovan Paolo Maggini
brescia 1631

It has double purfling on the front and has a wood that appears to be "birds eye" on the sides and backs. I have been told that many of the copies state they are a copy and include the country where they were made. I never have been too concerned about the maker of the violin, it's value, whether or not it is a copy, etc....but now I am considering having it appraised. Anyone have any info to share?

I have one as well. I recently had it appraised by an expert in South Africa who valued it at about R10,000.00 ($1,250.00)

Re: giovan paolo maggini

Re: giovan paolo maggini

I have the exact violin also and am in the process of having it appraised by a violin maker in Rochester, NY I will let you know what I find out.

Re: giovan paolo maggini

Hello I am an undergraduate at the Univesity of Kwa-Zulu Natal in South Africa. I have been playing the violin for about ten years and possess one of these violins that I do believe were made in 1900. I bought it 10 years ago for 1700 Rand and belive that it was well below its true value. My estimate now is within the region of $2000-$2500 dollars. It does have unique features such as a double scroll and a backing with maple eyes instead of the traditional wood lining. I would be interested to hear what valuatuions other people with similar violins have acquired.

Thanks
Caroline
