Tomaso Eberle

The best-known member of a large family of luthiers working around the Tyrol and Bohemian regions, who became established throughout Europe in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. Born in Vils in Austria in 1727, he was the son of Johan Anton (I) and the elder brother of Johann Anton (II), both working in Vils. From about 1750 Tomaso was in Naples, and quickly absorbed all the elements of the Gagliano style, working alongside Nicolo, Gennaro and Ferdinando Gagliano. Still active until about 1792, his work is of a very highly finished nature, generally more so than that of the Gagliano family themselves. His scrolls are however distinctive, and the slightly boxy arch, drawn from Tyrolean influences, provides a personal and recognisable style. Like the Gagliano family, he often inscribed a short religious dedication on the inside of the upper rib.
