A very fine French violin bow by Etienne Pajeot

A superb and absolutely typical example of Etienne Pajeot’s work from he 1820-30 period. Pajeot was an extremely influential maker whose workshop began to work on a more commercial scale in the 1840s, but his early bows are some of the most distinctive of the old French school. The bow is silver mounted without an underslide – in keeping with the early date – and is of Pajeot’s typically massive proportions. A very strong octagonal stick, weighing 61 grams.
