A superb violin bow by DOMINIQUE PECCATTE (1810-1874) Paris

Bows by the legendary Dominique Peccatte have been highly sought after by leading soloists and ensemble members for their amazing response, nuance, strength, and balance since they were made. This handsome, all-original bow 

by the master would be an outstanding musical companion for any artist as well as a savvy investment for a discerning collector. Peccatte learned his craft in the shop of the great J. B. Vuillaume in Paris under the eminent bowmaker Jean Pierre Marie Persoit. Peccatte left Vuillaume to take over the workshop of François Lupot upon his death in 1838. There, Peccatte was able to showcase not only his singular gift for bowmaking, but also a shrewd business sense that brought him extraordinary success and recognition from both his peers and musicians at the highest level.
