Notes:

"Along with their certificate, the Hamma dealership listed a series of documents related to the violin which are unfortunately now lost. Apparently a collector by the name of Dr. Fellerer of Cannstatt... wrote three letters, one each in 1867, 1868 and 1869, in which he referred to this instrument. Another letter, dated 13 September 1875, came from Baron von Aufsess, who owned the violin at the time." – Alessandra Barabaschi
