Richard Grünke Cello Bow, Bubenreuth circa 1965


Richard Grünke Cello Bow
An exceptional gold-mounted bow in unused condition by one of the most esteemed German makers of the 20th century.

Along with Hans-Karl Schmidt, Richard Gruenke and his two sons Klaus and Thomas have dominated German making “post-Pfretzschner”. Gruenke himself was born in Poland, and apprenticed with Edwin Herrmann, then worked for HR Pfretzschner, Roderich Paesold and Alfred Leicht before setting up his own highly successful studio. His bows are very distinctive, with the emphasis on power and versatility.

This example is typical of his highest quality of work, and is in mint “as-new” condition. The stick is of octagonal section orange-brown pernambuco, mounts are gold and ebony.

Mounts: gold/ebony

Dimensions: length 71.5cm, weight 82.8 grams
