This fine master violin bow is perfectly balanced and easy to handle - an unmistakable master work that was crafted around 1920 in Markneukirchen of premium dark, finely structured pernambuco wood. The violin bow's outstanding quality and characteristics gives good evidence that it was made by a master near the renowned Hermann Prell, even if its definite provenance has to remain unknown. The octagonal stick is of good strength and demonstrates excellent craftsmanship - this fine violin bow plays lively and actively at a well-balanced weight of 6nearly 59 g. The balance point of the violin bow is centered, slightly in the upper half, measured at 27 cm of 74.5 cm total length, including the adjuster. It is decorated in classical Markneukirchen bow-making style with a beautiful, carefully made ebony frog, a pearl eye and classy silver mounts. This great Markneukirchen violin bow was made ready to play by our luthiers and recommends itself with the resonance and the character of its warm, noble sound, that its bright, clear and plays strong and actively.
