This “Hill”, 2nd grade violin bow is typical of their workshop production in the first half of the twentieth century. A small nick in the silver tip face below the head mortice indicates the work of Sydney Braithwaite Yeoman, the bow workshop’s first apprentice, who joined the company in 1890 and who retired 55 years later, in 1945. The ebony frog has a full-length pearl slide and pearl back plate. The black whalebone lapping is original. The bow produces a full, warm sound and the spiccato is very well-balanced and precise.
