Hill bows have a well deserved reputation amongst professional players – here we have a nice “HILL” stamped cello bow from 1932.

This is a very well preserved Hill from the early 1930s. The maker’s mark on the silver face (0) denotes Arthur Scarbrow who left Hills around 1930 – however the stick is dated 1932, suggesting that the bow wasn’t mounted and offered for sale until around 2 years after Scarbrow must have made the stick.

The stick is of round section chocolate-pernambuco with an attractive figure, the silver and ebony frog is half-mounted, and the button is silver.

The condition is generally excellent – the handle facets are super-crisp, the stick is almost unmarked and the mounts are also very sharp.
