Friedrich August Glass II. was one of the Klingenthaler ateliers that help establish the good reputation which violin making earned for itself in the Vogtland region in the 19th century. This violin is an persuasive example of the high standards which these master applied in selecting their materials and executing their craftsmanship. The inside of the F.A. Glass violin features the handwritten label. It is a typical Klingenthal “native” with very transparent brown varnish on a golden-yellow background; the combined effect creates charmingly luminous plays of flickering light against the flames of the maple back. The purfling and the meticulously shaped interior with four corner blocks bear witness to the detailed precision of the work. The violin is in good condition, with only a few traces of use and a repair under the chinrest. It was worked over by our luthier and is offered ready to play. Its bright sound shares the remarkable resonance that only older violins posses, a voice that is open and precise, sinuous and warm in the lower registers.
