This is a beautifully made gold G-Clef bookmark.
 
Like all musical notations, this G-Clef is a visual instruction, or record, of a musical sound. Different clefs are used to designate the pitch of a piece, and there are three clefs in use today: the treble, the bass, and the C. They are represented by stylizations of the letters G, F, and C. The treble or G-Clef fixes the position of G above middle C.

Music for a City, Music for the World: 100 Years with the San Francisco Symphony
Give the book the San Francisco Chronicle calls "superb" and the Wall Street Journal calls "engrossing."
  
"Music lovers, life-long fans of the SFS, and American history buffs will find Rothe's remarkable accomplishment irresistible."
-Philip Campbell, The Bay Area Reporter
  
When the San Francisco Symphony presented its first concert just five years after the 1906 earthquake, its founders intended it to revitalize Bay Area cultural life. Little did they know what they’d started. In Music for a City, Music for the World, Larry Rothe tells the story of the people behind the scenes in an orchestra’s century-long journey through hard times and good times. Published to celebrate the San Francisco Symphony’s 100th anniversary, this comprehensive history, filled with hundreds of archival photos and images, gives readers a glimpse into the inner workings of one of the world’s foremost orchestras, and in doing so it illuminates the cultural life of a city.

The "David" Violin Bookmark

Through an arrangement with the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, San Francisco Symphony Concertmaster Alexander "Sasha" Barantschik has the exclusive use of this 1742 Guarnerius del Gesù violin (also known as The "David" Violin) once owned by the virtuoso Ferdinand David, who is believed to have played it in the world premiere of the Mendelssohn Violin Concerto in 1845. It was also the favorite instrument of the legendary Jascha Heifetz, who acquired it in 1922 and who bequeathed it to the Fine Arts Museums, with the stipulation that it be played only by artists worthy of the instrument and its legacy.
 
The "David" Violin is widely considered one of the finest violins in the world.
