A remarkable and authenticated example of the work of the Mittenwald maker Joan Carol Kloz dated to 1756. It was bought at auction in 2017 with a bequest by Carole Dale in memory of her husband Keith. She generously also provided an endowment to purchase a baroque and an early classical bow by the young Dutch-Israeli luthier Eitan Hoffer.
Cherubim is especially grateful to the luthier-curator Eckhard Kropfreiter for his assistance with this purchase.
The violin is presently with its first awardee. See a performance here:
