French violin bow, probably Cuniot-Hury workshop

This lightweight French violin bow is an excellent player which was made in Mirecourt around 1900, probably in the Cuniot-Hury workshop. The round bow stick was made of "bois d'abeille" of very good quality and this features excellent bouncing activity. The stick is of medium strength, yet of good stiffness and elasticity as it is known for French violin bows. The ebony frog is nickel mounted with Pearl eye and metal adjuster. The weight is 54,8 g and this violin bow is strong enough and very handy at play, the length 74,1 cm. The balance point is located in the upper half of the stick, near the middle and is measured at 26,9 cm from the frog end...

This good violin bow is undamaged and like all stringed instruments and bows from us has been brought fine playing condition. The sound is bright, clear and strong, warm and with a typical "French" character - active and plays very nicely. Special recommendation!
