Wanting info on a fiddle I just received

Posted by bethynay on Monday, January 3, 2011

This fiddle I just received has "Stainer" stamped on the back, & some information on the inside of the fiddle. Can anyone tell me anything about it? I have photos attached to my profile... I'm new at this forum & not sure if I've done this correctly! Please forgive my ignorance! Thanks!

Old Stainer model fiddle, German trade violin probably circa 1880 - 1915. Should make a decent player woth proper setup. Needs a good bridge, strings, probably sound post, would like some good pegs. Might want to check / touch up that crack on the front. No other obvious problems from the photos. Might need some seams re-glued.
