Description: Cello Bow - Fine French Cello Bow
There are no pictures available for this cello bow
I attribute this bow directly to F. X. TOURTE, Paris, circa 1800. - NOTE: A "professional expert" in Europe has now offered a vauqe attribution as "(possibly) the work of someone around Jules Gaulard, circa 1830". (However, I am quite familiar with the appearance of Gaulard's work. This cello bow in no way resembles any production I've seen, whether "certified as by" --Gaulard, or "attributed to" -- Gaulard.)
The round stick is made of exceptionally fine quality Pernambuco of a dark chocolate color.
The nickel ferrule, the full length MOP underslide. The unique and very rare adjuster in the form of an outer ring of Ebony over a core which is also ebony. Hair seems very old and unplayed but is in excellent conditon. Weight: 73.0 grams. Length: 69.6 cm.
Frog needs restoration as follows:
[Cheval to the left upper tray]-[MOP shield needs replaced on the right side].
