How much is an Edward Withers violin worth?

I've recently had a Withers violin passed down to me from my mother (who got it from her mother), and whilst i would never want to sell it, i'm curious as to how much it's worth. All i know about Edward Withers is that Withers is the oldest violin maker in GB, the shop founded in 1765.

First off, there are many English makers who date back before 1765, I can think of at least 10 off the top of my head, including one of the great ones - Hill from 1715. Some of the English makers are from the 1600's. As per Edward Withers, there were three Edward Withers, all of the same family working from about 1842-1920. The instruments have auctioned from $1500-$7500. As always it is best to have an instrument looked at in person for an appraisal, there are many copies of instruments and a Withers instrument may not be immune to a copy.

Here is some info on the Withers family

WITHERS, EDWARD, London : 1808-75. He was
born in London, Dec. 23, 1808, and died there Dec. 19, 1875.
He was the son of Edward and Mary Ann Withers. He was
not trained in the usual way, but he bought the business of
R. & W. Davis, 31 Coventry Street, Haymarket, in the year
1843, ^"<^ th^s started what proved to be a bright career in
violin-making He followed the Strad and Guarnerius models
exclusively, and made a large number of instruments, some of
which, in point of workmanship and tone, will compare
favourably with the best work of our classical school. He
is the maker of the famous Withers' Quartet—said to be
the finest English quartet of instruments in existence, made
previous to the year 1870.
The instruments are beautifully coated in amber varnish.
One of the fiddles has been sold and re-sold twice, realising
each time £$0. Its purchaser on one occasion was Mr. L.
d'Egville, who presented it to Wilhelmj.

WITHERS, EDWARD, London, contemporary. He
was born in London, Oct. 22, 1844, and is the eldest son of
the above Edward Withers.
He received his early education at Fulham. He is theonly
pupil of his father and of John Lott, the well-known
violin-maker. He commenced business at 31 Coventry
Street, London, in 1856, and moved later to 22 Wardour
Street. He worked with his father for a period of over
twenty-five years, and during that time made many new
instruments, and also executed nearly all the principal repairs
that were entrusted to the firm. Mr. Withers copies exclusively
the Stradivarius and Guarnerius models, using very old
and carefully selected wood. His varnish is entirely oil, and
varies in colour from amber to brown and red or golden red.
His method of varnishing is unique. He always puts amber
varnish on the wood and then hangs the fiddle up to dry for
some years before putting the colour on. The colour is also
oil.
He has made a large number of instruments, including
violins, tenors, and violoncellos. He turns out on an average
about twelve instruments per year. All these reach a high
standard of excellence, and are characterized as much for their
beautiful tone as for their exquisite appearance. His prices
art : violins and tenors from ^10 to ^65 ; violoncellos from
^20 to ^150.
On June i, 1893, he was appointed by Royal Warrant
violin-maker to H.R.H. the Duke of Edinburgh.
Three sons now assist him in the business. These are :
Edward Sidney Munns, born Aug. 3, 1870 ; Sidney Bernard,
born Oct. 22, 1873 ; and Douglas Sidney, born Aug. 10,
1879.
In Nov. 1896 Mr. Withers invented the new sound-post,
now universally known as "E. Withers' Patent Prepared
Hollow Sound-Post."
Mr. Withers is one of those who believe in oil varnish.
He expresses a strong belief that the varnish affects the quality
of the tone to an extent not allowed by the majority of
writers on the subject. Acting on this belief he was led early
in life to pay a close attention to the varnish question, and to
conduct a series of experiments with the view of wringing the
secret out of the great Ghost of Cremona. It is this belief
also which prompts him now to spend such time over the
varnishing process. Certain it is that his varnish is exceedingly
good and well laid on. It is rich, "juicy," and withal
perfectly transparent.
His label, it will be observed from the following facsimile,
is not dated. It is almost identical with that used by his
father, only having in addition the name of the street and
number of the house.
