1888 Jaroslav Houslar Dvorak guitar

I have a guitar that is made in Prague by Jaroslav Houslar Dvorak.  The only thing through my research is that he made violins at the end of the 1800's and beginning of the 1900's but not a thing about building guitars. This guitar has the exact label as his violins. It has brazilian rosewood back and sides with spruce or pine top.  Does anyone know anything about this builder or if it is a rare guitar. I would appreciate any information anyone has to offer.ThanksSee More

- By the way I really like the handmade capos on your website!, they are very appropriate for 19th century guitars I think :-)
