Jean Grand Adam Cello Bow, Paris circa 1850


Jean Grand Adam Cello Bow
Jean “Grand” Adam is a maker whose genius has only recently been acknowledged. Here we have an excellent stick dating from around 1850, fitted with new copy mounts.

Grand Adam is emerging as one of the most significant makers of the 19th century. His work is closer to that of FX Tourte than any other maker, and his bows seem to end up again and again in the hands of great players.

This is a very fine cello stick dating from around the time when Grand Adam left the Vuillaume shop to become independent – the head has more than a hint of Simon about it. The stick is of round section dark orange-brown pernambuco with a typical translucency in the flame, the modern mounts are silver and ebony, made in faithful copy style and without an underslide. The condition of the stick is excellent, with only a couple of small dings to the head to report.

Mounts: length 71.4cm, weight 78.5cm

Dimensions: silver/ebony
