The violin was a gift from Hartley’s fiancee Maria Robinson, it had an inscription ‘For WALLACE on the occasion of our engagement from MARIA’. The instrument used by Wallace Hartley was thought by some to have been lost in the Atlantic in the 1912 disaster. But in 2006 the son of an amateur musician found it in an attic, complete with a silver plate showing its provenance. After seven years of testing, costing tens of thousands of pounds, the water-stained violin has now been proven to be the one played by Hartley. The rosewood violin is incredibly well-preserved despite its age and it being exposed to the sea.
