Pierre Simon Cello Bow, Paris circa 1860


Pierre Simon Cello Bow
Pierre Simon is one of the great bowmakers of the mid 19th century, closely associated with Dominique Peccatte and Joseph Henry, but working in his own distinctive manner. Simon bows engender a quite fanatical devotion on the part of their owners – their combination of robustness and agility is unique.

This bow is a composite – all by Simon, but the mounts from another bow. There are some signs of use but generally the bow is in excellent condition.

Mounts: silver/ebony

Dimensions: length 71.1cm, weight 80.4 grams

Certificate: JF Raffin, Paris 2011 Pierre Simon Cello Bow certificate
