Fine violin bow by Otto Dürrschmidt

This fine German violin bow was made after 1950 by the Markneukirchen bow making workshop Otto Dürrschmidt. It bears the stamp and the emblem of Otto Carl Dürrschmidt who headed the workshop until he died in 1922. His sons Kurt Otto and Carl Wilhelm Dürrschmidt kept these signs as a renowned brandmark and continued the work of their father with great international success. The bow offered here was made for export, too, as the additional stamp "Made in GDR" indicates. The strong, octagonal stick is of fine, premium craftsmanship and was made of dark red-brown pernambuco wood, with a head that was carved with utmost care. The sensed balance-point is in the upper third of the bow, measured at 26.2 cm. Its noble appearance is completed by the blank ebony frog that bears the OD-logo. The bow features a large and precise, strong sound that is rather dark and highly recommendable. We offer this quality violin bow in ready to play condition, completely worked over by our luthiers.
