This master violin bow is the fine work of the Knopf family in Markneukirchen. The piece was crafted in the early 20th century and has a highly elastic and springy stick of dark brown pernambuco. The small, elegant, upright head, a typical feature of the English school, has a distinctive character to it; the ebony frog has a large Parisian eye and fittings of genuine silver with monogram silver engraving to the frog ring. Masterful craftsmanship can be seen in the central weight distribution of the round stick; it is 74.1 cm in length, and the bow weighs a total of 60.7 g. This is a bow for demanding musicians and is in perfect condition. It has a clear, large and sophisticated sound that is fluid and resonant. This fine violin bow deserves our warmest recommendation!
