The original brand mark of bow maker Carl Albert Nürnberger (1854-1931) on the stick of this 1920's violin bow does more than simply indicate its provenance: it is also an acknowledgement of the Saxonian bow making tradition in which the family Nürnberger held an outstanding position. With this magnificently crafted piece, Carl Albert Nürnberger, the grandson of Bausch student Franz Albert Nürnberger, proved himself to be a faithful heir to his forefathers who followed in the footsteps of the great Ludwig Bausch and expressed the assets of modern French bow making in distinctive styles. The fruits of these artisans' labour are impressively and directly manifest in this Carl Albert Nürnberger violin bow: it sits comfortably in the hand and plays with power and fluidity, opening up extremely comfortable and multi-facetted playing properties. Its balance point feels well-centred and slightly inclined towards the lower half of the stick. The excellent fittings of the silver-mounted bow is complemented by a distinctive Pearl eye. This Albert Nürnberger sen. bow perfectly satisfies sophisticated musical standards, and the few minor traces of use further confirm that it has been played often.
