Hill & Sons in London. A masterpiece in pristine conditon, that shows hardly any signs from playing. The flexible round stick is made of finest red-brown pernambuco wood. The ebony frog is sterling silver mounted with a Parisian eye and silver adjuster. The head plate is typically for the WE Hill bows of sterling silver.

The balance point feels perfectly centered in the hand and is measured at 25.9 cm inlcuding the length of the adjuster. This fine Frank Naper violin bow bears several original stamps and markings on shaft and headplate. With a certificate issued by the renowned expert Hieronymus Köstler, Stuttgart.
