Does anyone have any information on the current value of violins by G.A. Chanot? I have a Stradivarius copy made in Manchester in 1891 and am curious what others are going for.

I sold one from this maker not long ago, although it had been made slightly later (1906). Based on date and model, yours is probably worth somewhere between $12 and $14K (insurance value) depending on condition / quality. Let me know if you require further details or if you are interested in obtaining an insurance certificate for it.
