The French classical craftsman Eugène Sartory had an influence on German bow making that far exceeded the works of his great student, Hermann W. Prell (1875-1925). This master violin bow is another eloquent testament to the impact Sartory had; it was crafted by an unknown German bow maker around 1940. The sophisticated, precise and character-rich sound of this faithful Sartory model demonstrates a phenomenal clarity, brilliance and size. The delicate and finely detailed nuances of the bow are evident in the genuine silver-mounted ebony frog with its Parisian eye and elegant head; at 74.5 cm, it weighs 60.1 g, and its balance point is in the upper half. It is a nearly perfect piece in perfect condition, and we warmly recommend it!
