Fine H. R. Pfretzschner violin bow, c.1910

This fine and highly recommendable H. R. Pfretzschner violin bow is probably a personal piece made by Hermann Richard Pfretzschner, who studied with E. Sartory in Paris; a beautiful piece by Hermann Richard closely following the concepts of the Sartory model. It bears the original H. R. Pfretzschner brandstamps on shaft and frog. Having a weight of 61.9 g this bow is in good weight. The octagonal stick is of fluid strength, tensed and elastic, a delicate, active player - the stick is made of remarkably beautiful dark brown pernambuco wood. The ebony frog is nickel mounted with a Parisian eye and white shimmering pearl slide. The length is 74,4 cm, the bow has it's balance point centered, measured at 26.9 cm from the frog end. This fine H.R. Pretzschner violin bow is in immediate playing condition, and like all Corilon violin bows worked over and ready to play. It plays actively and produces a very convincing warm, large tone.
