3/4 - 19th century, fine violin bow

Fine, historical violin bows in ¾-size are highly sought-after rarities, especially if they can rightfully claim to come from a famous 19th-century atelier or its direct tradition. This particular bow was created around 1880 in Markneukirchen, then the capital city for making bows in Germany. The ebony frog is mounted in genuine silver and features a large mother-of-pearl eye, as is common for violin bows which were made following the rich traditions of the Knopf studio. The bow measures a total of 67.5 cm and has an especially finely crafted head, with a long protracted nose and its original head plate. Remarkably beautiful brown pernambuco was used for the octagonal stick. Its balance point is measured at 22.8 cm (incl. button) and feels even more well-centred and very broad. With a total weight of 44.8 g, the bow is very evenly balanced, and it has a distinctive lightness that lets young virtuosi play with great nuance. Its outstanding, strong sound is bright, clear and brilliant.
