Fine cello bow from the 1920s

An unknown bow maker selected light brown pernambuco for this top-quality cello bow, which was probably made in England in the 1920s. The bow is persuasive with its good strong octagonal stick and the attractive aesthetic of its narrowly carved head. Aficionados who see the genuine silver-mounted ebony frog with its large mother-of-pearl eye will appreciate the exceptional standard of this bow, which produces a very bright and warm sound. The balance point is perceived as being in the lower half near the frog and is measured at 23.6 cm of the total length of 72.1 cm; the bow weighs 76.1 g. Our luthiers have thoroughly set up this bow and rendered it ready to play. We highly recommend it.
