German violin bow with a large sound

This interesting violin bow was created in the 1920s and bears the unmistakable style of Hermann Prell (1875-1925), one of the most highly esteemed Markneukirchen bow maker. Prell studied under teachers such as Heinrich Hoyer and perfected his craft under the master of modern French bow making,
Eugène Sartory. The head of this delicate yet solid octagonal dark reddish-brown pernambuco stick is crafted very much in Hermann Prell's style. The bow has a classic and sophisticated character with genuine silver mounting on the ebony frog, a three-part button and a luminous green-white mother-of-pearl slide. The balance point of the bow is 26.3 cm and inclines towards the tip; all in all the bow measures 59.4 g and 74.5 cm. This fine violin bow is offered ready to play and features a large, powerful and precise sound, warm and clear and voluminous.
