This is a lovely bow by Roger Lotte carrying his own later brand. It’s a classic example of his work with a rounded heel, Parisian eye, and a Simon-like backwards curve to the head. The fine red pernambuco is also typical – round in section, with mounts of silver and ebony. The condition is excellent.
Roger Lotte bows have a very distinctive feel, strong and stiff but just pliant enough to be fun. This bow has a big, warm, rounded sound – the balance is towards the heel, making it feel quite effortless in spite of its strength.
Dimensions: Length 74.2cm, weight 69 grams
