b. 1790, at Hof, Bavaria. About 1815, after rather a chequered career, settled in Breslau, and worked for some years under Fichtel, an instrument maker there ; he then devoted himself entirely to violin making, producing good imitations of Italian violins and violoncellos. Later on moved to Berlin, where he died in 1864. He exhibited a quintet of instruments in London, 1862; the tone was excellent.
