Interesting English violin bow, stamped Dodd, 19th century

This fine and interesting English violin bow faintly stamped "Dodd" on shaft was made in the late 19th century and features a convincingly balanced weight distribution and a well-centered balance-point, so the relatively light weight of 57.5 g feels very comfortable in the hand and invites to play. The measured balance-point is at 24.2 cm of its 74.1 cm total length, measured including the length of the adjuster. Exceptional, red-brown colored pernambuco wood of finest quality was chosen for the round stick, that features good stiffness and useful elasticity. The head is a remarkably tasteful work. The blank, silver mounted ebony frog, the Pearl slide and a fine caspule silver adjuster are very suitable for a bow of this premium quality. After a complete work-over in our atelier we offer this interesting violin bow ready to play, with a special recommendation for its handyness, and its warm, somewhat mellow, bright sound. This violin bow complements brilliant, clear, sharp sounding violin tones.
