A fine English violin bow by James Tubbs, London circa 1880.

Made around 1880, this is an extremely strong and fine violin bow by James Tubbs. His bows of this period are archetypal of his work, with asymmetric pearl eyes on the frog, and the very typical rounded head that features in the majority of his bows, but the slightly higher proportions of the bow add to it’s weightiness giving the bow a feel that is often associated with the later Parisian bows of Voirin and Sartory. A very fine and handsome bow stupid JAS TUBBS on the handle, round stick, weighing 62 grams.
