Marcel Lapierre, French violin bow

After having spent 25 years working in the shadow of modern French violin making’s great luminaries, Marcel Lapierre founded his own atelier in Mirecourt in 1948. That marked the beginning of the period in which he produced his finest pieces. At his studio he reaped the fruits of his meandering path acquiring experience at the ateliers of the brothers Morizot, Louis Bazin and last but not least Emile Auguste Ouchard. This violin bow is a powerful testament to the high quality of his craftsmanship. The strong round stick of light-brown pernambuco bears the stamp of the renowned atelier of Georges Apparut, who commissioned the piece. The leading expert on French bows, J. F. Raffin in Paris, has issued a certificate confirming its provenance as Lapierre’s work. The balance point is measured at 25.6 cm of the total length of 74.7 cm, making it centrally positioned and slightly inclined towards the upper half of the bow, and giving the bow excellent playing properties. It is classically tasteful with its premium fittings: a silver-mounted ebony frog ornamented by a Parisian eye and a capsule button. Our restoration specialists have set it up thoroughly and made it ready to play. Its large, warm sound can now evolve across the full rich range of its volume.
