One violin (full size) has Karl Hofner Bubenreuth 1962 Germany on the label.
One violin has Joannes Jais nie fecit Bulfani in Tyroli 1779 on the label.
The bow has Albert Nurnberger stamped on it.
The Hofner violin was my practice violin when I was starting out.
The Joannes Jais violin & Albert Nurnberger bow were given to me by my parents when I was in high school. I vaguely remember my mother saying they got it somewhere in Los Angeles & something about papers. Unfortunately my mother recently passed away & I haven't been able to locate any papers. My father doesn't remember what dealer they went to, and my violin teacher has passed away also. They did give it to me in a lovely Bein & Fushi case. I doubt that I'll ever resume playing again and hate to have such a nice instrument just sitting around. I hope that someone can give me more information or leads on dealers or makers in my area that could help me. Thanks.
