Hopf Violin

I have a hofe violin as the picture below~But I am not sure if it is real one~When we discuss the value of a violin, does it mean the craftsmanship, brand, old, sound or any other things more important?


Some record about hopf: The Hopf name is stamped on a vast number of undistinguished violins, most celebrated among them are Caspar (1650-1711) and David (1762-86), both of whom lived in Klingenthal, Germany. While there are some minor variations amongst members of the Hopf family, all of them used the same design (dubbed the "Hopf model"). The Hopf family was involved in instrument making for several centuries. Some authentic Hopf violins are worth a few thousand dollars in excellent condition.

I think that the value of this violin is more sentimental than in money terms. But I may be wrong.
