By Cecie Stainer

Two brothers, working in Mittenwald about 1770. A great many of the violins with "Stainer" labels are made by members of the Klotz family and their imitators, the "Klotz" labels having been destroyed by the dealers and spurious "Stainer" ones substituted. Probably, also, when these makers had turned out a specially good instrument they used a " Stainer " label instead of their own. Authentic instruments of the Klotz family are consequently not common.
