Edwin August Präger (1875 - 1956) was born in Schönlind in the heartland of German violin making and spent a lifetime working initially in Markneukirchen, then in Leipzig - where he worked for Bausch - and finally returning to Markneukirchen where he founded his own workshop. He extensively copied the work of Tubbs, Tourte and Bausch and mounted his bows in silver, gold and tortoiseshell. John Dilworth refers to Präger's bows as 'High quality hand work.'

This bow bears the maker's known brand - AUG. EDWIN PRAGER. All parts appear to be original and in excellent condition.

This bow has the superb playing properties associated with this maker whose work is becoming increasingly sought after and desired by foremost soloists. It has excellent balance and stability, yet articulates extremely well and greatly facilitates spiccato.
