Charles Louis Bazin, fine French violin bow (certificate Raffin)

Kept in premium condition, this fine French violin bow is the work of the highly esteeemed French bow maker Charles Louis Bazin. The master crafted it around 1915, the year in which his father and teacher Charles Nicolas Bazin died. The latter had transferred his atelier in Mirecourt to his youngest son in 1907, and Charles Louis Bazin proved to be a worthy successor who guided the Bazin family business to the zenith of its success. Despite all of the creative individualism Charles Louis Bazin developed over the course of the years, he still remained true to the quality standards his family upheld. Consequently, to this day his bows rank amongst the most sought-after pieces for professional musicians due to their outstanding musical and aesthetic characteristics. This Louis Bazin violin bow is a delight with its large, sophisticated and warm sound and its comfortable playing properties. The powerful reddish-brown pernambuco stick measures 74.8 cm and has an octagonal profile. The centrally positioned balance point of the 63.2 g bow is measured at 26.1 cm of the total length, meaning that the bow lies comfortably in the hand. The work of a masterfully trained and experienced craftsman can be seen in both the striking elegance of the head as well as the silver-mounted ebony frog with its delicate ferrule, Parisian eye and capsule button. The original "Louis Bazin" stamp over the frog confirms the provenance of this outstanding bow, which it is in excellent condition. It has hardly any traces of use, with only an inconsequential repair on the left underside of the frog. We warmly recommend this bow, which is now ready to play after having been carefully set up by the luthiers at our atelier. The price includes a certificate by Jean-François Raffin.
