The Titanic rosewood violin played by the bandmaster is bound to bring in money, considered how involved they have all become. A stringed instrument considered the ultra one plus, will go on display at the Titanic Museum this week in Pigeon Forge, Tenn.
Played by the Bandmaster as RMS Titanic sank in the Atlantic after it struck an iceberg, it will be on exhibit until July 27, heading on to the Museum at Bransom, Missouri, after which it heads to its sister Museum in Bransom for display Aug.1 to 15.
The violin is set to be sold by the auction house in London, name of Henry Aldridge , and experts anticipate it will fetch somewhere in the six figures. It's a wise buy for those in the know. Its display is now in Belfast, Northern Ireland.
"The violin without a doubt is the most iconic piece that has been recovered from the Titanic, including the crow's nest bell,"said collector and Titanic expert Craig Sopin. Wallace Hartley and his fellow musicians depicted onscreen and in written accounst as bravely continuing to perform even as the ship was sinking.
