mittenwald Violin I think . Labelled Mathias hornsteiner.

Recommended Posts

The Violin is too late to be MH but is it still Mittenwald ? I think it is . Any idea of the age and can you please explain how you came to that conclusion. Also are there any good books on Mittenwald violins so I can read up on them . Thanks everybody

Agree with Jacob, Mitenwald violin, but from the mid-to-late 19th century

What gives the age away ? Varnish? Blocks ? Thanks

The Mittenwald scroll makers often wrote their initials and the last two numbers of the date in black ink on the end grain area of the bottom of the pegbox. I can’t see this from any of your pictures. You will normally have to scrub all the dirt out of the way to read this. The body and the scroll were often several years apart.
