Fine French violin bow by Joseph A. Vigneron (J.F. Raffin)

Joseph Arthur Vigneron (1851-1905), the student and adopted son of Claude Nicolas Husson, had a unique understanding of how to create artistic bows that were aesthetic and functional in equal measure. In 1886 and 1888, Vigneron père worked for Eugène Gand and Gustave Bernardel in Paris, where he continued to perfect his exceptional abilities. Around the turn of the century, he then crafted this remarkable piece, an exquisite French violin bow with a highly elastic, round pernambuco stick and perfect, central balance. The shaft bears its master's stamp: A. VIGNERON A PARIS. The flawless ebony frog has an iridescent Parisian eye and a beautiful mother-of-pearl slide. This historic masterpiece with its clear, radiant and voluminous sound has been kept in outstanding condition and has a certificate from Jean-François Raffin, Paris.
