Fine German violin bow - probably a rare early work by Hermann Richard Pfretzschner

The name H. R. Pfretzschner enjoys a particularly high standing in the annals of Markneukirchen bow making. Trained under J. B. Vuillaume in Paris, the master craftsman Hermann Richard Pfretzschner received the highest of honours even during his own lifetime by being appointed the official purveyor of the royal Saxon court in 1901. As a result, he then confidently put the regal crest on the frogs of his bows. The genuine silver-mounted ebony frog of the fine unstamped violin bow offered here, which was made earlier - around 1900 - typically around 65 g and based on the Voirin model, is probably one of Hermann Eichard Pfretzschner's rare earlier personal works. Its round flexible stick is made of the finest quality light-brown pernambuco, creating an agile violin bow with great resilience. At a length of 74.5 cm and a weight of typically around 65 g, this fine violin bow is very active, thanks in part to the central position of its balance point at 27.3 cm (incl. button). Its outstandingly fine, sweet and colorful bright sound is clear and radiant. Like all our string instruments and bows, free shipping, 30-day return policy, optional certificate and unlimited trade-in guarantee.
