French violin bow from war years, Mirecourt, probably Morizot Frères - unique

This unstamped French violin bow is an excellent player, it was made in Mirecourt in the first half of the 20th century, probably in the large atelier Louis Morizot and his sons during the most productive and successful period of their history. It is a rare piece that tells stories of a history which turned out most disastrously for Europe - which can be seen by the replacement adjuster which was most artistically made in war years from an empty gun cartridge. It is a typical French violin bow with all the sought-after features of Morizot workshop bows, especially an excellent powerful, crisp sound, that is bright and radiant. The strong and tense round stick has a weight of 60.0 g but is perfectly balanced and thus features handy lightness and stiffness and is set up with a nickel-mounted ebony frog with a Pearl eye. This unique bow features a total length of 74.9 cm including the length of the cartridge adjuster and has a well-centered sensed balance-point; it is measured at 26.2 cm. We can recommend this rare piece of European history both for players and collectors.
