if an authentic klotz, it could be worth $4000 to $6000. everything depends on AUTHENTICATION, CONDITION and TONE. fyi, a stagnant violin loses it's tone and a violin without tone is worthless no matter how old it is or who made it. the klotz family made nice german violins. there are lots of fakes on the market no matter who the maker. if $$$ is an issue having it authenticated, contact the nearest college or university music deparment to see if they can recommend a reputable, reasonable appraiser.
