Fine violin bow by Hermann W. Prell

This powerful violin bow made by Hermann Prell bears the original makers stamp on shaft. Hermann W. Prell studied bow making with Heinrich Hoyer in 1890 to 1893 and worked at several renowned bow makers such as Albert Nuernberger, August Rau and Eugene Sartory in Paris afterwards. This excellent violin bow was presumably manufactured was made in Markneukirchen around 1910. The strong yet flexible octagonal stick is made of premium pernambuco wood. The delicate ebony frog is silver mounted with Parisian eye and a beautiful green-rose shimmering pearl slide and made in the Sartory style. This recommendable violin bow is in excellent, near mint condition. The luthiers in our atelier completely worked over this recommendable Hermann Prell violin bow and made it ready to play, with new hair and leather. This bow produces an extremely bright, radiant and huge sound and has its balance point centered and deserves our special recommendation.
