Albert Nürnberger Violin Bow, Markneukirchen circa 1890

£5,000

Albert Nürnberger Violin Bow, Markneukirchen circa 1890This is a very nice lightweight Albert Nürnberger from around 1890. Although it carries an 1878 brand, Klaus Grünke tells me that this doesn’t relate to the year of manufacture. It also bears a Wurlitzer brand, indicating that it was made for or sold by Wurlitzer in New York. The stick is of round section lightly flamed chocolate brown pernambuco, with a distinctly French transition from octagonal to round; the frog is silver-mounted. All parts are original and the condition is excellent

Not your typical Nürnberger – light, sprightly and whippy, this would be a great choice for period repertoire. It has a very clean aristocratic sound and excellent balance – very similar to a good Voirin or early Lamy in feel. Also something of a collector’s item.

Weight 59 grams, length 74.3cm
