A well-restored violin bow by F.N. Voirin, Paris circa 1880

Francois-Nicolas Voirin was the cousin of J.B. Vuillaume, and one of the most significant bow makes of the late nineteenth century. This example has a expertly repaired head, and is otherwise a very good example of his work with excellent playing qualities. Round stick, 60 grams. Priced fairly according to condition.

Detail of the cheek repair to the head of the bow. The stick is of very high quality and intact.
