This German-made bow is quite distinctive, despite its lack of an identifying stamp. The silver-mounted frog has unusually large Parisian eyes, and the head is also faced with a silver plate, an unusual feature outside the English workshops of W.E. Hill and Sons. The silver-coated thread lapping is also more commonly found in French bow making, though the deep, rounded head has its own character. The bow performs well, and at a very standard weight of 60.2 grams, should suit most advancing students with a relatively modest budget.
