Bausch Cello Bow, Markneukirchen circa 1920

£4,500

Bausch Cello Bow
A good cello bow from the Bausch workshop, dating from the early 1900s.

The Bausch family in Leipzig were highly influential in 19th century Germany, producing and selling superb quality bows made by members of their own family or by the Knopfs in Dresden. Towards the end of the 19th century their operation bcame more commerical, but this bow still bears some traits of their earlier refinement. In particular the large parisian eye with very decorative mother of pearl is a strong feature, as are the “tram lines” enclosing the pearl slide.

The stick is of round section red brown pernambuco of high quality, mounts are silver and ebony. The condition of the bow is fair, but there are no cracks in the stick. The frog has a couple of cracks, and there’s some heavy thumbnail wear in the stick, also quite a few small dunts to the varnish. Obviously this bow has had a lot of use, but there’s nothing of real consequence, and the spring and camber are excellent.

Mounts: silver/ebony

Dimensions: length 71.4cm, weight 78.6 grams
