stolen in Bremen from the corridor between the Cathedral and its
handicapped accessible-entrance from the south (near „Glocke“ and
„Bleikeller“), while being max. 3 minutes unattended. I have
already been to the police.
If this viol and also my two baroque bows turns up, or are offered to
you for sale (even possibly at an auction), then please contact either
me (details at the bottom of this email) or the German police
immediately. Attached are pictures of the viol. Instrument and bows
were in a dark-green Cello-case, plastic with 8 clasps and two
handles, some french trade name I don`t remember.
The 6-string viol is violin-shaped (italian) with a flat back plate
and was built in Cologne in 2008 by Claus Derenbach. Pegs made of
ebony and a scroll on top.
The baroque-bows are both made of snakewood, one with a very heavy and
round stick and a clip-in frog made of boxwood (Anthony Baylis, no
mark), the other with a screw and frog, entirely snakewood (no mark
