H.R. Pfretzschner violin bow, silver mounted (certificate Klaus Grünke)

This reddish brown Markneukirchen artist bow is an original piece by H. R. Pfretzschner, made in Markneukirchen around the turn of the century 1890-1900. H.R. Pfretzschners name, which is of excellent reputation, is confirmed by a certifcate by renowned master bow maker Klaus Grünke, which is included in the price. The round stick is made of finest dark pernambuco wood and features a perfect combination of tension and elasticity. The ebony frog is silver mounted and is decorated with a Pearl eye. This recommendable Pfretzschner violin bow has some minor reairs to the ebony of the frog which are considered in the price. It was made ready to play by the Grünke workshop and features an overall length of 74.3 cm, with a measured balance-point at 26.4 cm from the frog end. The sensed balance-point is well-centered with a slight tendance towards the head. This well preserved H. R. Pfretzschner violin bow produces a bright and direct, delicate sound and offers agile virtuoso playing properties.
