French violin bow, atelier Charles Louis Bazin (certificate J.F. Raffin)

This French violin bow made in the atelier of Charles Louis Bazin (1881-1953) is a late piece made after 1940, and it pays full honour to its heritage from the famous Mirecourt family ateliers. This French bow fits well in the hand, is very responsive and is excellent for active play with its warm, large, powerful sound. Its lovely round stick was made of reddish-brown pernambuco and features good strength and elasticity. The head was patterned after the Louis Bazin model; the ebony frog with nickel silver fittings is decorated by a Pearl eye and a mother-of-pearl slide. The button also ends with a Parisian eye. At a length of 74.5 cm, the bow weighs 60.5 g and has its balance point centered. It was worked over by our luthiers and is offered with a minor repair to the end of the stick (considered in the price), ready to play. Its provenance is confirmed by a letter of authenticity from the French bow-making expert J.-F. Raffin which is included in the price.
