François Pecatte (atelier), a rare French violin bow made around 1850 with a certificate from J.-F. Raffin. This French violin bow was made around 1850 in the workshop of the younger brother of the great Dominique Pecatte, with whom he was probably in close contact. François Peccatte (Mirecourt, 1810 - 1874) supplied many renowned violinists of his time, including Henri Vieuxtemps, Joseph Joachim and Eugène Ysaÿe.

This powerful François Pecatte violin bow is perfectly balanced and, due to its weight, sits very comfortably in the hand, responds precisely and immediately and enables highly virtuoso playing with its bright, radiantly clear sound. The strong, round stick is made of light brown amourette wood and is strong and elastic. The head, frog and the adjuster are in the Pecatte style; the nickel-silver mounted ebony frog is adorned with a mother-of-pearl eye. With a length of 73.9 cm, this fine violin bow has its balance point in the upper half - so the violin bow can be played powerfully, virtuosically with a short bow stroke, and very well controlled; after a thorough refurbishment in our workshop, we offer this highly recommended undamaged François Pecatte (Atelier) violin bow to powerful players, collectors and investors alike as a playing bow and investment in perfectly preserved and ready-to-play condition. Like all our instruments and bows, we offer free shipping, a 30-day return policy and Corilon's trade-in guarantee.
