Lothar Seifert came from a family of musical instrument makers in the Kirchberg area of Germany. His father, Oskar, began making bows in 1924 and by 1932 has set up a work shop in Graslitz. Like so many refugees, the Seifert family was forced to re-locate after World War II. They had heard of a small village called Bubenreuth, whose mayor was spreading fliers among refugees calling for makers of musical instruments to settle in his town. Lothar opened his shop with a partner in Bubenreuth in 1950 and once again established the family as a well respected bow producer.
