I recently came across a violin labeled "Joseph Klots in Mittenwalde anno 1795", just like the real ones online. At our school we have old violins they don't need and I asked to be given one for an art project.
I brought it home and looked it up and realized they can go for a bit of good money when they're in decent shape. Mine however is not in decent shape with splits and cracks but I want to know the authenticity of it. Is it a real Joseph Klotz and would it be worth any money if it was in good condition? Can I get it fixed?
