Mittenwald master violin, early 19th century (certificate Hieronymus Köstler)

This interesting early Mittenwald violin labeled Mathias Hornsteiner I is a highly interesting instrument for professional musicians, that was crafted 1800-1820 and shows influences of the Hornsteiner school. The beautiful, red-brown colored oleaginous varnish is quite milky but still transparent and bears retouches and many traces of use at the top and the ribs. These signs from playing underline that this master violin was a pleasure to play for its former owners, just as some skillfully executed repairs including a repaired soundpost crack that have no impact on the violin's sound properties. It was completely worked over by our experienced expert restorer and is offered ready to express its large and warm sound, warm, flute-like, nuanced, radiant and somewhat sweet in the upper ranges. The price includes a certificate by Stuttgart expert Hieronymus Köstler.
