01/17/10] FREE. The webmaster has in his possession a rib garland for a Hutchins baritone violin on the original deep-ribbed model. It belonged to Dr. Hutchins, but was never finished. The ribs are covered with a yellow ground and sealed, which was typical of her work. The ribs are still on the mold, which will be included, and the package includes an endpin and a largely completed scroll. There is no top or back. We would recommend that the ribs be cut down for use as a shallow-ribbed model, but we leave that decision to a new owner. Costs of packing and shipping must be paid in advance, but otherwise the price is unbeatable. Please contact R. J. Spear for further details.
