Fine antique Mittenwald Neuner & Hornsteiner violin, approx. 1860

Dating back to around 1860, this fine and powerful antique violin from Mittenwald is in good condition. A classic Italian model by Antonio Stradivari inspired this unlabeled instrument, which is unmistakably a Mittenwald violin crafted by Neuner & Hornsteiner from the outstanding tone woods of the Karwendel mountains. The large scroll shows the typical style that confirms its heritage, whilst the shape of the body and the cleanly carved sound holes are a successful nod to Stradivari. The thinly applied coat of a warm brown varnish shows the typical wear and traces from playing which are quite common for Neuner & Hornsteiner violins of this age. Accentuated edges indicate the work of an experienced hand whose touch is also evident in the meticulous care paid to minor details. The quality of this Neuner & Hornsteiner violin's voice — large, warm, clear rich in overtones — parallels its craftsmanship. Two small repairs at the left soundhole allow us to offer this fine quality instrument at an attractively low price. This warmly recommended instrument is now ready to play after having been carefully set up by the restoration specialists in our atelier.
