We had stolen from us our Stentor 1 violin made in France in about 1860 I believe. It was from the shop of Jean-Baptiste Vuillaume and repaired by my father before he passed. He had played this particular instrument for years before his declining health made it rare for him to play. We have looked in vain to find this stolen violin but to no avail. It had boxwood pegs, chinrest, and tailpiece. Has anyone had any experience playing a similar instrument and has anyone seen a stray Stentor 1? I understand these are not particularly rare and we would like to re-aquire this instrument as it holds many sentimental memories for us here in Arizona. Thanks in advance to those of you who are kind enough to respond.
