Silver mounted viola bow by Alfons Riedl

This viola bow is a quality piece from the atelier of bow making master Alfons Riedl in Bubenreuth, Bavaria, that was built approx. 1960 and bears Riedl´s original stamp. Alfons Riedl was expelled from Schönbach in Bohemia after World War II and settled in Bavaria, where he continued the instrument making traditions of his family. The strong octagonal stick of this bow was crafted of red-brown colored pernambuco wood and features convincing elasticity. The measured balance point is at 27.5 cm of 75.1 cm total length and is sensed in the lower half of the bow. The total weight is 72.3 g. The silver mounting, a small Parisian eye that is made of yellow shimmering mother-of-pearle just as the slide, and a three-part adjuster decorate this perfectly preserved bow. We offer this interesting work in best condition, ready to play after a complete work-over in our atelier, with a special recommendation for its good playing properties and the large, clear and strong sound.
