This is a very attractive violin bow from the Morizot workshop, made around 1950 and in excellent condition.

The Morizot workshop was a large family business involving six sons and two grandsons of Louis Morizot. They produced a vast number of bows principally for the student market, many of which were sold under the brands of various violin-makers and dealers.

This bow is typical of their better production up to 1950, and utilizes a Hill-style slide as popularized by EA Ouchard. The stick is of round section orange pernambuco with a wild figure, mounts are silver and ebony.

The bow is in excellent condition, the only issue of note being a small amount of thumbnail wear in front of the thumb projection.

This is a great bow for the price, strong yet responsive with something of a 19th century feel. Smooth and comfortable in the hand, with a full and complex sound – a very versatile bow which works on and off the string, and which lends itself to all kinds of repertoire.
