I obtained this violin from my mother. It was her father's and he acquired this violin from his girlfriend prior to his marriage to my grandmother in 1948. My grandfather was from Pemiscot County, MO.
The violin is marked in the body of the violin, as follows:
"Giovan Paolo Maggini
The violin bears the signature scroll on the neck, double purfing, and the back measures 14 1/16th (36 cm). The violin has a two piece back.
I've attached pictures for review.
