Thread Name: What's a Strad, Amati etc fiddle?
Subject: RE: What's a Strad, Amati etc fiddle?
I have recently aquired a tatty looking violin. I live in Nottingham England and wonder if anbody can tell me anymore about it.
The violin has a label inside reading Antonious Stradivarious Cremonensis faciebat anno 1713 and was made in czechoslovakia - on the label is a picture of a lion with the word Agnalone underneath.
another name apearing on the violin reads dresden and my violin is stamped with the number 249 on the head.
