Beare Goodwin violin made by J.B.Vuillaume

Edited: October 29, 2019, 2:00 PM · Hi
Can anyone date this violin? Is says Beare Goodwin on the inside label....but it also has the name as "J.B.Vuillaume".

I think its about 1900. Beare Goodwin didn't exist until 1892 but Jean Baptiste Vuillaume died in 1875?

Labels can be portable, but this one looks well placed and looks like it has been there for a while. They, like most other large shops of the day, had instruments made for them or purchased instruments and placed their shop label inside them.

Coming from Beare, it could be a fine instrument, but one can not date or identify an object from a picture of a label placed inside said object.
