Gustav Adolf Prager, bow maker (1855 - 1953 Landwüst/Markneukirchen)

Fine German violin bows by Gustav Prager rank among the best Markneukirchen violin bows from the early 20th century and have gained great popularity at the time. This fine Gustav Prager violin bow from the 1930's bears the original stamp by Gustav Prager Prager on shaft. The octagonal stick of medium strength of this 74.2 cm violin bow is made of fine quality pernambuco wood. The typical ebony frog is nickel-silver mounted with a Pearl eye, a silver slide and a three-part silver adjuster. This Gustav Prager violin bow has - at its weight of slightly over 56 g - a surprisingly rich sound and has its balance point well centered, slightly shifted into the upper half of the stick, and measured at 26.9 cm. This fine Markneukichen masterpiece produces a warm, large, rounded tone and complements clear or brilliant sounding violins.
