Fine French violin bow, L. Morizot (certificate J.F. Raffin)

This French Morizot freres violin bow is a particularly fine and well-made specimen from one of the most renowned bow-making ateliers in the modern French lutherie tradition. It was built around 1950, at the height of the creative output of the family business that was founded in 1919 by Louis Joseph Morizot. During those halcyon years, L. Morizot’s sons made bows that are prized to this day for their sophisticated visual aesthetics and extraordinarily good playability. The bow we offer here features a strong, perfectly balanced stick with a weight distribution typical of a Morizot model. The round stick is made of reddish brown pernambuco and has a silver-mounted ebony frog embellished by a genuine silver button and a Parisian eye in the classic Morizot style. The total length of the bow is 74.3 cm, with a balance point that feels centrally weighted, slightly shifted towards the lower half, and is measured at 26.7 cm, including the button. With its agile and light response, this bow would very well suit an experienced, discerning violinist who knows how to appreciate its strong sound that is rich in overtones and beautifully French in character. It was made ready to play by our luthiers and bears an original L. MORIZOT stamp; its provenance is further confirmed by a certificate by J.F. Raffin and an older written valuation for 6.000 DM by the renowed Munich bow maker Markus Wörz.
