Does anyone seen the violin label Karl Junkfer? (anno 2002)

May 19, 2020, 7:53 AM · I can't find anything on Google.
It's my first violin and I cherish it because it has a good sound for its price. I bought it secondhand for $57.
I assume it's a factory-made violin, but I'm curious about the brand. Made in Germany. According to the label
It's such a cheap instrument that no one knows, right?
