This antique French violin bow of affordable quality with a recommended bright, rounded sound was made in Mirecourt around 1910, most likely in the Laberte workshops. It is a typical example of French Mirecourt bow making during the period of its greatest successes. The round stick is of medium to soft strength and features high elasticity and fluid playing characteristic. The total weight of the violin bow is 62 g, and its perceived balance point is well centered, measured at 26.4 cm of the total length of 74.4 cm. This French bow is ready to play and embodies all of the good playing attributes that violin bows from France are famous for. With its Parisian eye and the yellow-orange mother-of-pearl slide, the nickel fittings of this simple French violin bow are both straightforward and elegant in equal measure. Its bright, warm, rounded, nuanced tone is amongst the characteristics that confirm it is a piece made by an experienced workshop.
