This unstamped bow is firm and has a solid feel with excellent playing properties that would please most serious violinists. It is well-balanced with crisp articulation and excellent spiccato.

Although the origin is unknown, it can be said that the shape of the very elegant head with a slightly elongated nose, is reminiscent of the studio of Marc Laberte. It could also be from any one of the many excellent workshops in Mirecourt.
