Seeking stolen violin


In January, 2014, thieves stole the musical instruments from our home in Portland, Oregon, USA. Among the instruments we lost was my wife’s handmade violin and its bow, together in an antique black wooden arch-top case.

We’re offering a reward for any information that leads to its return. I can be contacted via email at

The thieves also stole my guitar and my cello, among other things. Please take a look at these other two links if you might encounter any of our instruments.
