In 1903, John Dadmun created this unique lobster claw violin. The giant lobster claw came from a lobster caught in Gloucester in march of 1862. The claw itself weighs a little over 5 lbs. I love unusual instruments, and this one is a true gem. I wish I could hear what the lobster violin sounded like. Where is this violin today?
