French violin bow, atelier Cuniot-Hury

The large, fluid sound created by this affordable French violin bow made in the workshop of Eugène Cuniot-Hury is an impressive demonstration of the art of French bow making: its light and dynamic character and quality of tone gives it outstanding characteristics for a brazil wood violin bow. This bow is one of the trade quality atelier works of Cuniot-Hury, who employed up to 12 bow makers in his golden period: his atelier was a place where many excellent bow makers such as Louis Morizot and Émile François Ouchard began their careers. The solid, strong, round stick is crafted from brown good quality brazil wood and has a very even weight distribution; its broad and central balance point is measured at 27.2 cm of the total length of 74.4 cm. With its mother-of-pearl eye and the white-rose mother-of-pearl slide, the German silver fittings of the Vuillaume style frog on a J. B. Vuillaume slide is straightforward and elegant in equal measure. Its large, warm, bright and precise tone is amongst the characteristics that confirm it is a piece made by a talented hand. After having been thoroughly set up by the specialists at our atelier, this excellent, affordable French violin bow is now ready to play.
