The medium grained spruce of the top and the flamed maple of the two-piece back demonstrate excellent standards, both in choice of materials and craftsmanship.

The workshops of August Clemens Glier ranked among the renowned and successful late 19th century violin making enterprises in Markneukirchen, Saxony. The violin offered here was built there and is labelled accordingly, its overall impression and good quality are typical for A. C. Glier instruments. The medium grained spruce of the top and the flamed maple of the two-piece back demonstrate excellent standards, both in choice of materials and craftsmanship. The red-brown varnish was applied tastefully and features antique touches that were executed with utmost care. Our expert luthiers worked over this with violin completely; it has only acceptable, minor repairs (a pegbox repair and a replaced corner) and is ready to play. Its sound is a strong and mature, warm voice that features some dark and clear character and is rich in overtones.
