Galen Hartley, Montpellier, France, 2015 Flag of France
A Ruggeri copy from one of Canada’s most promising young makers. It has a mellow tone and bears a convincingly antiqued varnish of pale orange shaded to yellow. It is a careful copy of a Ruggeri. See www.hartleyviolins.com

Sigisvald Hoibakke, Victoria B.C., 1960/75 Flag of Canada
A particularly fine example of the work of this fondly remembered local maker. According to the writing inside it was made in 1960 and re-varnished by the maker in 1975, the year of his death. It is virtually un-played since the re-varnishing.
