Albert Nürnberger Viola Bow, Markneukirchen circa 1920

£6,500 On trial

Albert Nürnberger Viola Bow, Markneukirchen circa 1920
This is a very fine Nürnberger family viola bow, probably an early work by Carl Albert Nürnberger. The brand with a * at each end came into use after 1910, yet some archaic aspects of this bow’s construction suggest that it can’t be much later than that. The bow has a silver face and a pinned underslide, and it oozes style. The stick is of beautifully flecked round section pernambuco – mounts are silver and ebony.
