Concert mandolin by Luigi Embergher 5, 5 bis, 6,7, 8....

 

Luigi Embergher (February 4, 1856 Arpino - May 12th 1943 Rome) was an Italian Luthier known for his high quality bowlback mandolins.

There were eleven versions of his Roman pattern mandolins, indicated with the letters A or B and with a number.

 

Type A and B were Mandolini da studio, student quality instruments.

Mandolins 1-4 were orchestra instruments.

Mandolins 5, 5-bis, and 6 were for the concert artist and soloist.

Numbers 7 and 8 were elite instruments, more decorated than the other models.

The number 5 was sought after by virtuoso performers and "great masters."

The number 8 was a more luxurious instrument and inlaid with ivory and mother-of-pearl; one of these was bought by Maria Feodorovna, the Queen mother of Tsar Nicholas II of Russia, in 1902.
