Another great cello bow from one of the less well known Vuillaume makers, Jean “Grand” Adam. A very attractive bow showing hardly any signs of use over its 150 year life, it makes quite an impression.
The stick is of round section dark red pernambuco of exceptional quality, mounts are silver and ebony (the frog is half-mounted). The condition of the stick is outstanding.
The frog has a beautifully executed cheval with replaced wood to the upper quarter on both sides, almost invisible to the naked eye. The button is not original to the stick – however, it’s of the period, it’s appropriate in style and it fits very well.
