Violin/F.A. Sennett violins


I own a violin made in 1920 by maker f.a. sennett of Dallas,TX. series B #360. It is still in very good condition with only some body wear. I was wanting to know what it may be worth if sold and where to start looking for a buyer?

Hi Anthony, while I'm not an authority on violin values, I did find this listing for Sennett:

Violins aren't a liquid asset; you might try a local luthier shop, an auction house like the one above to explore value and/or a possible sale. Best of luck.

BEFORE YOU ASK, PLEASE NOTE: I cannot answer questions about instrument repair or value. You need to visit a reputable local violin shop for such assistance, or do some reasearch online: I can answer questions related to the study of the violin, teaching violin and the performance of concert (classical) music. I'm happy to assist anyone who is serious about his/her violin journey as a pathway to personal growth and musical achievement.
