The New Tielke
Still wanted
deutsche Version


What was not to be expected id happen: Another hithertoe unknown instrument from the Tielke workshop has appeared.

TieWV 46a
Violin, ca. 1687
North Germany, private property

Signed, but lable damaged. Only the body is considered as an authentic piece of work; there is no carved head.

And the most unexpected: The cabinet, mentioned on p. 36 of our 2011 edition, is still existing!! My wife and I were able to see it and take photographs on the 6th of July 2022 at the premises of the antiquarian Van Kollenburg in the Netherlands.

The is also a short report by Renée Louwers in the Galpin Society Newsletter 67 (Autumn 2023), pp. 1, 6, 7.
