Antique, silver mounted viola bow. Fine German work, c.1910

This antique, silver mounted German viola bow it is a fine work from the Markneukirchen region in Germany, made early in the 20th century in approx. 1910. The viola bow is of good weight - 72.6 g - and a strong, yet active, comfortable player that works very well with most violas. The French style ebony frog is silver mounted with pearl eye and pearl slide. The octagonal stick is made of red brown pernambuco wood. The balance point feels well centered, and is measured at 26.3 cm of a total length of 74.2 cm, measured including the adjuster. This recommendable antique viola bow plays strongly and forgiving, yet tense and active and produces a powerful, large, warm and clear, radiant tone.
