I'm trying to determine the origin and year of a German violin. The type written label under the E string reads "Germany." It has a single line rectangular border around it. I believe sometime after 1900 the laws changed and required labels to read Made in Germany. There is another label, hand printed in pencil, under the G string that reads "Glass-Starner" or something close to it. Any ideas about the violin's age and origin?
