Fine H.R. Pfretzschner violin bow, silver mounted

This reddish brown Markneukirchen artist bow is an original piece by H. R. Pfretzschner, made in Markneukirchen around 1930 / 1940. H.R. Pfretzschners name, which is of excellent reputation, is confirmed by the original brandstamps on shaft and on the frog. 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, originally stamped, and is decorated with a Parisian eye. This recommendable H. R. Pfretzschner bow is undamaged, it was expertly made ready to play and features an overall length of 74.1 cm, with a measured balance-point at 25.8 cm from the frog end. The sensed balance-point is well-centered with a slight tendance towards the frog, so that the bow feels much lighter in the hand that its actual weight may suggest. This well preserved H. R. Pfretzschner violin bow produces a warm, bright and direct, delicate sound and offers agile virtuoso playing properties.
