stainer violin querry

Posted by chris sytsma on Saturday, April 14, 2012

Got a trivia question:  I am looking at a stainer violin,copy of course) old in picture it is in an old thick sided wood coffin case, I'm guessing 1870 to 90's by picture.Handle gone latch is set on the angle of the coffin body.  Label in side is rectangle with corners cut off at 45 degrees.   straight line at bottom.  label says   Jacobus stainer, m, Abfam

                                                 prope   Oenipotum   17 33  

 the J hangs down in Jacobus   and 33 is in heavy ink, hand written (Feather?)

 My question the (m) rather than (in) and  Abfam   both unusual. Any ideas on Nationality ?  When I get it I'll send a picture. but i'm dyin of curiousity. thanks Chris     Also the 4 corners of violin are honey colored

There are many stainer copies, and they vary greatly in quality. Images would help.
