Emile Ouchard Cello Bow, Mirecourt circa 1925

£8,500

Emile Ouchard Cello Bow
Emile Ouchard was a prolific maker who made bows of varying qualities for many different firms, but his best work is extremely fine – here we have an unusually good cello bow of his in excellent condition.

Although stamped Cuniot Hury, this bow was made after the death of Eugène Cuniot, at which time the firm was being run by his widow and his former assistant Emile Ouchard.

As the certificate states, this bow is a characteristic specimen representing the best work of this renowned maker. The stick is of nicely flamed dark brown pernambuco of round section, mounts are silver and ebony with a 3-part adjuster and plain pearl eye. Unlike some Ouchard sticks, the wood is dense and very strong.

The condition is excellent, with no damages whatsoever – recently rehaired, and with new lapping and grip and a new mammoth ivory face.

Mounts: silver/ebony

Dimensions: weight 81.8 grams, length 71.5cm

Certificate: Pierre Guillaume, Maison Bernard, Brussels 2018 Emile Ouchard Cello Bow certificate
