This is an intriguing bow, made from snakewood rather than pernambuco, and displaying the characteristic dark stripes of this dense South American hardwood. Snakewood was commonly used for Baroque-period bows but is rarely seen these days. Despite the wood having a heavier weight than pernambuco, this bow feels surprisingly light in the hand, but produces a clear, warm sound. Silver mounts enhance its elegant appearance.
