Cousenon Bernardel Violin Bow, Mirecourt circa 1930

£2,750

Cousenon Bernardel Violin Bow,  Mirecourt circa 1930
This is a very good silver-mounted Mirecourt bow stamped Leon Bernardel Paris. This brand was owned by the Cousenon firm, but most likely the bow was supplied by the Laberte workshops. Typical French features include the cuts to the corners of the ferrule and the visible transition from octagonal to round section beyond the end of the lapping.

This is a great playing bow with a stiff but lively stick drawing a big and colourful sound. If you’re after a delicate bow then look away now, but if you need something that packs a bit of a punch, perhaps for traditional repertoire or to beef up a plain-sounding violin, this could be the bow for you. Imperturbable legato, excellent attack, bold and brash … a big sound in a controllable package.

Length 74.1cm, weight 61.5 grams
