Etienne Pajeot Cello Bow, Mirecourt circa 1830

£47,500

Etienne Pajeot Cello Bow
Etienne Pajeot is one of the great early French makers, and his bows are highly sought after for their excellent technical qualities. This is a relatively rare early cello bow in good condition.

Pajeot was a brilliant and restless maker who came up with a number of innovations in bow-making. Fortunately this bow is entirely free from them, it’s a very modern piece of work showing a design which has remained unchanged from Pajeot’s day to ours.

The stick is of round section red-brown pernambuco with a light flame – this is wood of the highest quality.

The condition is generally very good – there’s some significant playing wear just in front of the lapping which has been filled, the heel plate has been replaced, there’s the usual string wear to the frog, otherwise no issues.

Mounts: silver/ebony

Dimensions: length 70.3cm, weight 80 grams

Certificate: Raffin/Bigot/Le Canu Paris 2017
