Violin by Braun & Hauser München, approximately 1900

Preserved in excellent condition, this good violin is a solid example of the Mittenwald violin-making tradition, and its stands out not only due to its elegant appearance but because of its warm, brilliant sound. It ranks amongst the instruments which the highly-esteemed Munich atelier of Braun & Hauser commissioned from carefully chosen ateliers in Mittenwald and then fit with its own label. A mildly-flamed maple of great beauty and high quality was selected for the two-piece back, whereas the top is of premium moderately-grained spruce. The instrument was patterned after a classic Guarnerius design, and the purfling reflects the work of a well-trained and steady hand. Minor and insignificant scratching to the light golden-orange varnish is visible around the bridge. This lovely violin is a quality instrument in outstanding condition, and it was made ready to play in our restoration atelier. Its resonant sound is compelling, with a bright, warm and clear character.
