This 1908 example of Glass' work possesses both a rich tonal color as well as a projecting sound. Well blanaced across all registers, this violin is remarkably easy to play. Beautifully restored in our Ann Arbor workshop, this instrument is as beautiful to look at as it is to play. A medium width flame decends from the center joint of the 2 piece back with hints of the golden ground showing through the red-brown varnish.
