A very fine violin bow made by the master British bow maker Howard Green.
The bow is made from expertly selected pernambuco and mounted in gold and buffalo horn.
In excellent condition, previously owned by a leading member of the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra who said this about the bow.
"My Howard Green bow works excellently in all the different types of music that I play. It can cope equally well with a Bruckner Symphony and a Mozart String Quartet. The quality that I most admire is the way that it is possible to forget that the bow is there in your hand leaving you free to concentrate on the music without worrying about whether it will bounce when you want it to and avoid bouncing when you really do not want it to! It is also a very attractive work of art – the buffalo horn frog is good to look at and functional as well, it does not slip even in hot concert halls."
