This is an outstanding later period Tubbs bow in great condition. The round section stick is of dark red-brown pernambuco, mounts are silver and ebony. The frog is plain and the adjuster slightly shorter than on a middle period bow. It’s quite rare to see a Tubbs in this sort of condition – there’s minimal wear to the stick and the frog, and all the silver is crisp and undamaged.
