Fine old viola bow, silver, probably England, c.1920

The fine, unstamped viola bow presented here features finest quality, desirable playing properties and an unusually powerful, clear and war, sound. It is probably an English piece of work that was made in approximately 1920. Its weight distribution is strikingly good, with a balance point that feels broad and centrally positioned thanks to the round, tense, strong and reactive stick of pernambuco, a silver-mounted frog with an elegant three-piece button and a finely crafted attractive head. The impressive Pearl eye on the frog is an ornament serves as a tribute to the great French bow making tradition. This fine viola bow is also ideal for sophisticated and professinal musicians and creates a pleasantly powerful, clear, noble and warm sound.
