Help With Identifying Age of Violin?

Hey all!

I play viola, but today I purchased a violin off of a mutual friend because I also wan't to start learning violin as well.

The person I purchased it off of said she played it in high school, and it shows. It has numerous scratches, but it has a really nice tone.

Anyways, the label inside of it looks something like this:

Karl Knilling
Handmade in Germany
No. 52615
8F

Any help would be very appreciated!
