SALE Fine cello bow - August Rau

This old silver mounted cello was made in the workshop of August Rau and is one of August Raus later, mid 20th century works, suggested by the strong and active octagonal stick of red-brown pernambuco wood that produces a warm, large sound. Fine work at the head expresses the high standards of this August Rau cello bow: the finely made Markneukirchen frog is a later addition, silver-mounted with a Parisian eye and has a one-part-adjuster; slide and eye are made of whitish shimmering mother-of-pearl. The total weight 78.1 cm; it features both excellent aesthetic and musical qualities, with a balance-point that is sensed centered slightly inclined towards the tip and measured at 23.6 cm including the adjuster. We offer this fine August Rau cello bow in perfect condition, ready to play after a complete work-over by the expert luthiers in our atelier.
