Neuner & Hornsteiner

A company founded in Mittenwald in the early nineteenth century by the Neuner and Hornsteiner families, both of whom were long-established violin makers in the town. The first partnership was between Mathias Neuner (IV) and Cantius Hornsteiner. Credit is generally given to Anton Seitz as the chief craftsman, and maker of the better quality instruments. Johann Neuner (III), was born in 1809 and died in 1883, and was later the director of the firm, which was inherited by his son Ludwig (1840-1897).  Under Ludwig, the company grew enormously, employing over 200 workers, producing all grades and types of bowed instruments in a factory system. It was continued into the twentieth century by Hans Neuner (1878-1934), the son of Ludwig.
