Excellent old German violin bow, 1930's, Johannes Adler

The stick bears the Johannes Adler stamp on shaft. The sensed balance point of this bow is centered, very slightly inclined towards the frog, and measured at 27.0 cm of the total length of 74.3 cm. With its very well balanced total weight of 60.1 g...
