The Otto Adler bow-making workshop was based in Mittenwald, the famous Sourthern German centre of violin making until Adler’s death in 1945. This octagonal, pernambuco viola bow has silver mounts and a solid, square-backed ebony frog in good condition. At just under 67 grams, the bow is relatively light for a viola bow and would perhaps suit a player with a smaller instrument. The playing characteristics are good, with a clean, smooth action.
