Cuniot-Hury Violin Bow, Mirecourt circa 1920


Cuniot-Hury Violin Bow, Mirecourt circa 1920This is a very good Cuniot-Hury made by Emile F. Ouchard, who apprenticed with Eugene Cuniot-Hury and then took over the workshop in 1912. The model is characterized by a tall narrow head and a frog with a rounded heel – the plain adjuster of slightly greater diameter than the stick is also typical. The output of this workshop is vary varied in quality, but this is a lovely example, finely worked and with good wood. The stick is of round section orange-brown pernambuco, mounts are nickel and ebony. The bow is in excellent condition.

The first French bow I ever bought was a Cuniot-Hury/Ouchard, and I have quite a soft spot for these bows. This particular bow would be a great choice for a talented student – it offers a kind of budget introduction to the joys of a good French bow. It has a strong sound with good traction, but it’s also nervy and dynamic, rather more so than equivalent bows from Markneukirchen. Very good legato, a rounded but bright tone, and a comfortable, controllable action …
