French violin bow, c.1940, probably Laberte - with a warm tone

This good French violin bow with a recommended warm, rounded sound was made in Mirecourt around 1940, most likely in the Laberte workshops. It is a typical example of French Mirecourt bowmaking during the period of its greatest successes. The round stick is of medium to soft strength and features high elasticity and fluid playing characteristic. The total weight is 58.0 g, and its perceived balance point is well centered, measured at 25.2 cm of the total length of 74.4 cm. This French bow is ready to play and embodies all of the good playing attributes that bows from France are famous for. With its Parisian eye and the yellow-orange mother-of-pearl slide, the nickel silver fittings of the bow are both straightforward and elegant in equal measure. Its bright, warm, rounded, nuanced tone is amongst the characteristics that confirm it is a piece made by a talented hand.
