MARMA, silver violin bow after Sartory, approx. 1920

The great French master Eugène Nicolas Sartory is among those craftsmen, who set standards in bow making internationally and were copied by numerous successors. The violin bow offered here that bears the original MARMA stamp of Karl Bauer´s Markneukirchen bow making workshops, is an excellent example of Sartory´s influence on the bow makers in Saxony, that is not limited to his famous apprentice Hermann W. Prell: The unknown bow maker who crafted this piece in the late 1920s knew to apply the principles of Sartory very well, too: The medium strong round stick of light-brown colored pernambuco wood is light and features good elasticity at a total weight of 54.8 g. The perfect weight distribution is very similar to the classical French pattern: the balance-point of the bow is sensed well-centered and is measured at 26.8 cm of 74.6 cm total length. The silver mounted ebony frog is decorated with a Parisian eye, a silver slide and capsule adjuster. This premium setup corresponds with the outstanding sound properties of this bow, that is very well preserved including some minor traces of use and of its high age. The German violin bow was completely worked over in our atelier and is offered ready to play, with a special recommendation for its clear sound that bears some dark and typical French note.
