French viola bow for N. Audinot, silver, J. Thibouville-Lamy (certificate J. F. Raffin)

This fine French viola bow was made around the year 1920 in the renowned Jérôme Thibouville-Lamy workshops in Mirecourt for Nestor Audinot, whose dealer's stamp it bears. The tense, round stick made of finely grained red pernambuco is of medium strength and is very elastic. The viola bow weighs 66.4 g and is 74.3 cm long, with a balance point that feels perfectly centered, measuring at 26.3 cm. The silver-mounted ebony frog is not original to the stick that features a Vuillaume slide. A certificate provided by J. F. Raffin, a Parisian bow-making expert, is included in the price and can be viewed at the "certificate" button. The quality of this premium French viola bow is self-evident in the immensely powerful, bright, clear and huge sound and great volume it produces, immediately ready to play after a complete workover by our experienced luthiers.
