Mid 19th Century Peccatte School Violin Bow, France.
Sold with its Raffin certificate, this mid-19th century French violin bow demonstrates exquisite playing properties befitting its assigned pedigree and provenance of Peccatte School. Such as it is, an unbranded bow that cannot be further attributed to a particular maker, made in the style of and after the work of Dominique Peccatte, but not by his workshop. Bows like this one are reasonable investments but are unlikely to dramatically increase in value, making them an ideal choice for a player. If it were a named bow, such a tool would be more interesting to a collector, elevating the item to ranges of price that make them otherwise too expensive for an up-and-coming player to obtain. An excellent and worthy alternative and competitor to similarly priced modern bows. Weighing 60.6 grams.
