Looking for a recommendation for a violin appraisal in the Wash D.C. area. I have an old violin passed through the family marked "Joseph Guarnerius filius Andreae fecit Cremone fub titulo S. Teresie 1706". I want to determine if this was made by the Master's father or if is a later reproduction and determine a value. (If it were a repro, why wouldn't they copy the "del Gesu" mark?) Also has what looks like an appraisal sticker from Cremona Violin Shop in Chicago, says "Grade 9" dated 1922.
Please advise if you know someone I can take it to.
