French violin bow, Prosper Colas

This highly recommended French violin bow by the great French master and almunus of J.B. Vuillaume Prosper Colas (1842-1919) is made of fine pernambuco wood. The unstamped bow is a clear work of this master, his Vuillaume model, it was made around 1900 and is a typical example of Prosper Colas' work during the period of his greatest successes. The round stick is of good stiffness and extremely elastic. The total weight is 58.4 g and its perceived balance point is towards the centre, measured at 27.7 cm of the total length of 74.3 cm. This French violin bow embodies all of the good playing attributes that French bows are famous for. With its mother-of-pearl eye and the white-rose mother-of-pearl slide, the German silver (nickel) fittings of the frog are both straightforward and elegant in equal measure. Its extremely large, warm, bright and precise tone is amongst the characteristics that confirm it is a piece made by a most talented hand. A certificate of authenticity is optional upon request, at cost.
