This fine unstamped violin bow most likely hails from the Leipzig atelier of Ludwig Bausch & Sohn, which was founded in 1863 by Ludwig Christian August Bausch (1805-1871), who was considered Germany's Tourte. The works speak of the outstanding reputation that the Bausch name attained for itself on the international market for musical instruments. The delicate round stick of finest light-brown pernambuco was crafted to be very tense and elastic; it was fitted with a delicate and expressive nickel-mounted ebony frog with a mother-of-pearl eye and a premium-quality slide of opalescent pinkish-green mother-of-pearl. With a total length of 74.2 cm and a weight of 57.2 g, this extremely versatile violin bow is very evenly distributed: its centred and broad balance point (slightly inclined towards the uppe rhalf of the stick) measures at 26.8 cm. This fine 19th century violin bow is offered in perfect condition, it creates a clear, warm, brigh, sweet and resonant sound.
