From jerry fieldIf you check Tarisio website under "redbook" you will find that at auction, violins by Wilkanowski bring between $900 & $1200. That is the auction price -- retail being higher. Hopefully, that is useful information.

I would suggest talking to owners/employees of violin shops near where he lived and worked.
