Fine German violin bow, Nürnberger school

Well suited for professional musicians with demanding standards, this exceptional violin bow is thought to come from the circle of the respected Markneukirchen atelier of Albert Nürnberger. Under the management of Albert Nürnberger, Jr. (24.4.1854-15.2.1931), the workshop ranked alongside W. E. Hill & Sons as one of the world's best sources of bows for stringed instruments in its day.

Well suited for professional musicians with demanding standards, this exceptional violin bow is thought to come from the circle of the respected Markneukirchen atelier of Albert Nürnberger. Under the management of Albert Nürnberger, Jr. (24.4.1854-15.2.1931), the workshop ranked alongside W. E. Hill & Sons as one of the world's best sources of bows for stringed instruments in its day. This bow has no brandmark but is indubitably the work of a master with its powerful, large and sophisticated sound; it was made around 1930, and its craftsmanship pays great tribute to its presumed heritage. The flexible yet strong, octagonal stick is highly active and made of the finest red-brown pernambuco with a balance point that is measured at 25.4 cm (incl. the button of solid silver) and feels as if it is centered, slightly inclined towards the upper half of the stick allowing good tip control. In keeping with the high quality of the wood, has especially exquisite features: the ebony frog with its mother-of-pearl eye is mounted in genuine silver, while the slide has a charming play of shimmering rosé and green. Our luthiers spent time and effort to work over this special piece that is offered in best condition, ready to play.
