To quote from ‘ Deutsche Bogenmacher’ : “…Carl Albert Nürnberger made the Nürnberger workshop of he 1920s into one of the top addresses in the world for bowmaking. Hardly any other bow makers of his generation could list so many well known artists in their circle of customers, and hardly any others worked with his precision and sense of continuity”.
This example has an octagonal stick of dark orange pernambuco with an attractive figure – mounts are silver and ebony. The condition is very clean – no cracks or repairs, just a couple of small dents in the stick.
The bows of Carl Albert Nürnberger are rightly recognized as being of the highest order, and entirely compatible with the work of his best French contemporaries. Fortunately the market still devalues them on account of their being German, and this makes them a great buy for a musician.
This is a very well realised bow – ideal weight, a firm but responsive stick, a good full tone. Very controllable, very grown up, not flashy, just supremely functional.
Dimensions: length 74.3cm, weight 59 grams
