Description:

French Silver Mounted Violin Bow, the round stick unstamped, the ebony frog with pearl eye, the silver and ebony adjuster, weight 60 grams.
Estimate $3,800-4,200

Very good, wear to top of frog. Needs minor straightening. Camber is good. No visible cracks. Although frog and adjuster appears to fit the stick, it is impossible to guarantee originality of ferrule and pearl slide. A bow this old would not have an original screw and eyelet.
