    You are correct it is in the African violet family. This looks like a type of Cupid’s bow (Achimenes). Check out two species from these included links below and if you have a match. Over 100 years, that’s awesome! Best wishes! Link to A. longiflora. https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Achimenes_longiflora_05.JPG
