Mathias Neuner, Mittenwald, c.1870


The label dates it to 1801, but this violin is more likely to be the work of the grandson of the same name. The varnish appears to be of a typical Mittenwald dark hue, but is a remarkable transparent dark red when seen up close. A new bass bar has been fitted and the tone is extremely powerful and viola-like on the lower strings.
