A superb violin bow by EUGÈNE NICOLAS SARTORY (1871-1946) Paris
Weight: 62.5 grams

A prodigy in bow making, Eugène Sartory set up his personal studio when he was just twenty-two. Over his remarkable half-century-long career, he never ceased to impress musicians and his fellow makers with his steady and consistent production of the highest quality. His bows are among the most sought after by prominent artists around the world. The legendary violinist Eugène Ysaÿe commissioned several bows from the maker. Influenced by both Voirin and Lamy, Sartory bows are well balanced and even with abundant strength. This rare and beautiful all-original Sartory bow in gold and ebony is an exceptional example of these characteristics and his personal style.
