H.R. Pfretzschner violin bow: lightweight, tense, active, strong

This lightweight violin bow by H.R. Pfretzschner was made around 1940 in Markneukirchen as a fine qualiy handmade piece of work. The bow bears the original H.R.Pfretzschner stamp on shaft and as a coat of arms on the frog. The fine round stick is lightweight yet strong and active and features high tension and reactivity. The stick is made of beautiful brown pernambuco wood. The ebony frog is nickel mounted with a Parisian eye and a green-rose shimmering pearl slide. The weight is 56.1 g, the total length 74.3 cm. This German Pfretzschner bow is especially well balanced and has its balance point well centered, and is therefore very comfortable to play. Without any cracks or damage, the bow is offered in perfect condition, with new hair, leather and silver winding.
