Unknown Origin
 
Circa 1930 or earlier.

 
This is an old bow, circa 1930 or earlier, with Hill-type fittings. Wear at the grip on the shaft show a lot of use. This is a reasonably good trade quality bow, probably aimed at students. The stick is unstamped.

It is in good condition with good playing propeties.

  Ebony, with Parisian eye. Rounded heel, Plain nickel-silver adjuster.

  Nickel-silver

Wrapping :
  Silver wrapping, seems to have been redone recently. New black leather thumbpad.

Tip Facing :
  Bone

Condition :
  Stick and frog in good condition, in spite of obvious use and wear. The tip slide has minor cracks in it and the peak is missing - this poses not structural threat to the tip. It should be a simple task for a violinmaker to replace the tip slide.
