The large, fluid sound created by this French violin bow made by Eugène Cuniot-Hury is an impressive demonstration of the art of French bow making: its light and dynamic character at good weight and quality of tone gives it outstanding characteristics. This Cuniot-Hury violin bow is one of the rare c.1900 works of Cuniot-Hury, who employed up to 12 bow makers in his golden period: his atelier was a place where many excellent bow makers such as Louis Morizot and Émile François Ouchard began their careers. The solid, strong, round stick has a very even weight distribution; its broad and central balance point is measured at 25.8 cm of the total length of 74.3 cm. With its mother-of-pearl eye and the white-rose mother-of-pearl slide, the nickel fittings of finel finished frog is straightforward, affordable and elegant in equal measure. Its large, warm, bright and precise tone is amongst the characteristics that confirm it is a piece made by a talented hand. After having been thoroughly set up by the specialists at our atelier, this excellent Cuniot-Hury violin bow is now ready to play. A certificate of authenticity by J. F. Raffin is included in the price.
