French violin bow by Louis Joseph Morizot, known as Morizot père

This fine French violin bow is an excellent piece made by Louis Joseph Morizot (1874 - 1957) in approximately 1930, a time at which his family atelier was at the pinnacle of its power and influence. From 1920 onward, he brought up his five sons to become outstanding bow makers in the spirit of his own teachers, Charles Nicolas Bazin and Eugène Sartory. Under the name "Louis Morizot et ses Fils," the family enjoyed a sterling reputation amongst luthiers and musicians well beyond their home town of Mirecourt. With its ideally proportioned stick of the finest pernambuco, this fine bow is an impressive example of what an excellent role model Morizot père was to his sons. Featuring a round-profile stick, the bow has perfect weight distribution with a balance point that is centrally positioned at 25.7 cm of its total length of 74.5 cm. The bow's weight of 59.5 g allows the dynamic, elastic nature of the powerful stick to come into full fruition with nuance. The unornamented nickel-mounted frog with a three-piece button and the delicately crafted head define the aesthetic of this bow, which the specialists at our atelier set up and made ready to play. The radiant typically French sound full of powerful warmth and clarity speaks for itself.
