Mittenwald violin, Neuner & Hornsteiner, approx. 1910

There can be no doubt about the beauty and sophisticated sound of this simple quality Neuner & Hornsteiner Mittenwald violin which was handcrafted around 1910, although its exact origin is still enshrouded in some mystery. Probably made by a workshop apprentice or young journeyman, the inside label indicates that it was sold by the Neuner & Hornsteiner firm that refers back to the Neuner dynasty of violin makers, one of the oldest and most respected families in Mittenwald. This violin is a typical “Mittenwalder,” made of good quality sound woods from the region: moderately grained spruce was used for the top, and the one-piece back is made of plain sycamore maple. Clear traces of use, some of which have been touched up, and a filled spot on top (upper right bout) can be seen along the golden-brown, transparent varnish of the instrument, indicating that previous owners clearly enjoyed playing it. We are offering it in uncracked condition, ready to play; our luthier worked it over, and it has now has fine new boxwood fittings, a new bridge, sound post and Pirastro strings.
