The instrument was stolen from a vehicle in the Los Feliz area of Los Angeles.
The violin is labelled with: "Hieronymus Amatus Cremonen., Nicolai Figlius fecit, 1710."
A violin by the same maker was sold at an auction in 2018 for over US $900,000.
A US $25,000 reward is being offered for information leading to the recovery.
