An interesting French violin bow made in Mirecourt circa 1900 quite possibly in the workshop of C. N. Bazin.
It's branded H. Fluery on the audience side which is a name we don't come across in the usual literature. It could refer to the retailer, but could just as easily be the name of the maker. Eitherway its a great bow from the Bazin school.
The stick is of quality, dense pernambuco and the mounts are ebony and nickel. There are a few cosmetic marks on the head and a slight expansion crack in one of the rings of the adjuser, hence the affordable price. But it's a superb French bow and would make a fine playing bow for an advancing student wanting to own a great French bow without breaking the bank.
The bow is light, nimble, swift and incredibly fun to use. It draws a suprisingly big tone and is superbly balanced.
The weight is 55 grams with it's original lightweight tinsel lapping.
