Charles Nicolas Bazin, fine French violin bow (certificate J. F. Raffin)

This fine French violin bow is a sophisticated piece crafted by the great Charles Nicolas Bazin around 1905. The fine round stick was made in keeping with Voirin’s model, a source of inspiration which C. N. Bazin turned to more and more during this period. This tendency would become a recurring theme in his work, which had to be set aside for many years after he had to take on the family business following his father’s sudden death. In the last two decades of the 19th century, an extremely successful era of his life, Charles Nicolas Bazin was able to find new ways to express the light and dynamicprinciple that makes Voirin bows distinctive. This fine violin bow, which weighs 59.3 g, is an excellent example of the success of his approach. Its balance point is measured at 26.8 cm of the overall length of 74.2 cm and is perceived as being centred, somewhat inclined towards the tip. Made of finest dark-brown pernambuco, the originally stamped Charles Nicolas Bazin bow has classically beautiful premium fittings with a silver-mounted ebony frog graced by a Parisian eye and massive silver adjuster. It has been completely set up and is with minor repais to the ebony of the frog (the stick is not affected) ready to play, and its bright, sweet, warm sound is compelling. A certificate of authenticity issued by the highly esteemed Parisian bow-making expert J. F. Raffin is included in the price and confirms its provenance.
