Hello there ^_^,
I recently came into posession of a violin labeled "Johann Gottleib Glier Fabrique in neukirchen bey Adorf Im voightlande 1750". It also has 1750 stamped or carved on the inside (1750 looks a bit crooked).
I took it to a luthier who told me the violin's design had gone out of style some 200 years ago, although I don't see much of a difference from today's violins. It has an "unusual" back (seems more undultated) and is very light weight. After it was restored it had a very big and dark tone.
Anywho, does anyone know anything about Glier? I've asked everywhere but only have bits and pieces of info. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! ^_^
