Roman Teller, Bubenreuth 1969

 

   

Sometimes I look at these pictures and realize just how startlingly attractive some of this wood is. Unfortunately our photography is not of the same caliber, and in life this instrument leans more into the red-brown arena than the lighter hues shown. Nonetheless, it's a great example of 1960's fine German workmanship made under the master himself. After his death, (early 1970's?) the workshop continued under his son-in-law Rudolf Buchner, a magnificent maker in his own right. Hard to imagine it'in its fifth decade already.
