Question
This is my fathers Violin and must be over 75 yrs old
the label reads

GENUINE
Balsam Fir
Rudolph Wurlitzer & Bro
Cincinnati, O 1886

Answer
OK. Their most important maker at that time was Robert Gliere. They are retailing now over $10,000. However, you need to look and see if the label has a number.This will give us some indication of the maker. Perhaps you could get a few pictures for me.The Glieres are rare. So yours is most probably not but let's see.
