SALE German cello bow. Probably H. R. Pfretzschner, silver mounted

This old silver mounted cello bow is an early 20th century Markneukirchen piece of work that was probably made in the H. R. Pfretzschner workshop around 1920, suggested by the characterstically shaped head and the strong and active round stick of dark brown pernambuco wood that produces a highly resonant and clear, bright, ringing sound. Good work at the head and the quality set-up of the silver mounted ebony frog expresses the high standards of this cello bow: the finely made frog, which is presumably an original but later work by the H. R. Pfretzschner workshop, is silver-mounted with a Parisian eye and has a three-part-adjuster; slide and eye are made of whitish shimmering mother-of-pearl. The total length of the bow is 71.3 cm, the total weight 75.3 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 24.5 cm including the adjuster. We offer this rare cello bow in good condition with a minor repair to the stick from thumb wear, ready to play after a complete work-over by the expert luthiers in our atelier.
