For sale an extremely fine old french violin bow, made circa 1790, most likely by Léonard Tourte. Stick made of nice dark pernambucco, very strong (on a scale from 1 to 10 I would give 8/10), with good playability, perfectly straight. The bow is ready to play, with an old fashioned silk lapping. Belive it or not the tip is original to the stick, also made of ivory. The condition is really good : no cracks, no repairs on the stick. Small damage to the frog and button (splits, visible on photos). Whole stick crack free, checked with UV light.

If you ask me, I think the bow is a wonderful bow made by Léonard Tourte, stick, frog and button, all original. The frog fits perfectly to the stick, as the button do. This bow is a wonderful and rare example of early french bow making. Any inquiry like that after sale we will cancel your order immediately. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need anything.
