French violin bow, Joseph Alfred Lamy Père (certificate J.F. Raffin)

Around 1900, at the zenith of his career as a bow maker, the great Parisian master Joseph Alfred Lamy "Père" created this elegant French violin bow, which ranks among his most refined pieces. With its moderately thick, round stick of dark brown pernambuco, its broader head and powerful phases, this bow reflects a special and distinctive character within Lamy's oeuvre. The Parisian eye and capsule adjuster are of the finest craftsmanship. When played, the bow has wonderful elasticity, and its balance point tends ever so slightly towards the tip; its sound is bright, warm and clear. A historic masterpiece for the utmost in musical standards, that was worked over completely and is ready to play; it bears the original stamp “A. LAMY A PARIS,” which is confirmed by a certificate issued by Jean-François Raffin of Paris. The Raffin-certificate is included in the price.
