Fine English violin bow by W. E. Hill & Sons, circa 1930

This English bow was made in the early 20th century and reflects the outstanding quality of the work done at the tradition-rooted London atelier W. E. Hill & Sons - pieces crafted by the best bow makers of the day. The bow's strong round stick is made of the finest reddish-brown pernambuco and bears the original W. E. H. & S. stamp over the frog. With its good tension, the bow creates a mature, sophisticated sound full of character and volume. The traditionally shaped head features a silver head plate and the blank ebony frog is mounted in genuine silver. These fittings are simple in their elegance and are complemented by the original black colored grip. The bow is a perfectly preserved classical masterpiece by an esteemed workshop, that was completely reconditioned and made ready to play by our expert luthiers. No special recommendation is needed on our part, since this bow speaks for itself.
