Can anyone assist with determining value of this violin? Style/likely origin? It does not have a label.

Can't see details of the scroll, rib corners, or pegbox from the pictures you've provided, but it looks like generic post-WWII German trade violin. As for value, do you need to know private sale value, wholesale or insurance value? If I had one like that in my shop and it was in good shape and sounded good, I might ask around $500 - $700 for it. A lot of fiddles from that time period just didn't work well, (i.e. Scherl and Roth, some Pfretscner) and I just traded a bunch of similar ones off for less than $50 each to a friend who sells fiddles for $150.
