Emile François Ouchard Violin Bow, Mirecourt circa 1930

£8,000

Emile François Ouchard Violin Bow, Mirecourt circa 1930This is one of two superb bows we have by this fine French maker. Ouchard apprenticed to Eugène Cuniot, and ended up running the firm of Cuniot-Hury after Cuniot’s death in 1910. From 1923 onwards, Ouchard worked under his own name along with his son Emile Auguste.

This is a very typical example of Ouchard’s work, with a rounded heel, finely tapered pearl slide, and his most classical head. The wood is beautifully flamed orange-brown pernaumbuco, round section, mounts are silver and ebony. The condition is excellent.

This bow weighs in at just over 59 grams and the weight and balance feel ideal. Like many French bows, the pernambuco is very dense, giving a feeling of elegance and responsiveness in the hand. The sound is broad and creamy, the spring is nervy but controllable. A very nice example and a great all-round French bow at an affordable price.

Dimensions: Length 74.2cm, weight 59 grams
