Pfretzschner viola bow, a strong player, c. 1920

This fine silver mounted mounted viola bow by H. R. Pfretzschner, a strong player, was made by the legendary Markneukirchen workshop. H.R. Pfretzschner served as a leading name in his art by pioneering the principles of modern French bow making in Germany. This fine viola bow has his stamp on its frog and stick and shows defining features of this great maker. The round, strong and elastic stick of dark red pernambuco has Hermann Richard Pfretzschner's typical diameter distribution and is of top quality, as is the silver-mounted frog with its mother-of-pearl eye and adjuster. This rare Pfretzschner viola bow has its balance point centered, slightly inclined towards the head at 27.2 cm including the length of the adjuster. It plays actively and precisely and produces an extremely large, warm, radiant tone.
