This is an unusually well preserved example of the work of Louis Morizot, made for the Brussels luthier LA Lagarenne whose stamp is on the bow. The stick is of round section mid-brown pernambuco with a pronounced figure, mounts are silver and ebony. All materials and workmanship are of excellent quality.
The bow is in perfect condition, even retaining its original ivory face.
If I wanted to save myself some time I could just copy the description for this bow. Both are very similar, strong and excellently balanced bows which work with any repertoire. This bow is a little edgier with a bold and broad tone, slightly gritty, very muscular for its weight. It’s a beautiful example of this maker with a rather collectable stamp!
Dimensions: length 74.3cm, weight 60.7 grams
Certificate: Pierre Guillaume, Brussels 2018
