German violin bow by Carl Weimer (sold)

This bow is a good German fullsize violin bow from the 1950ies. The stick is stamped Carl Weimer on shaft above the frog, we have no doubts on the correctness of this statement. The origin is Saxony. The octagonal stick is made of light brown pernambuco wood, the length is 74,6 cm. The ebony frog is nickel mounted with pearl eye and nicely shimmering pearl slide. The stick is of medium strength and plays softer towards the tip. The measured balance point is at 25,5 cm from the frog end, the felt balance point is in the middle, just slightly towards the tip. The bow is in perfect undamaged condition and has been restored with new hair, leather and silver lapping. Produces a bright, warm, round sound, less mellow.
