Markneukirchen master violin bow, Kurt Dölling, approx. 1950

This fully handcrafted master violin bow is a late master piece made by Kurt Dölling (1902 - 1952) in Markneukirchen. It was made in the mid of the 20th century, presumably around the year 1950. The octagonal stick bears Kurt Dölling's original brandstamp, it is made of high quality pernambuco wood, the stick is of very good elasticity and plays very actively and features excellent bounce and tension. The finely hand-made blank ebony frog is nickel mounted with a Parisian eye and adorned with a rose-white shimmering mother of pearl slide. The balance-point of this excellent 74.4 cm violin bow that shows wear and signs from extensive playing feels slightly inclined towards the tip, measured at 27.0 cm including the adjuster. This very useful and versatile Kurt Dölling violin bow can be used with our without pressure, it has a warm, bright, clear tone and works very well with most players and most violins.
