Violin bow by Georges Barjonnet, Mirecourt

Violin bow by Georges Barjonnet, Mirecourt

About Georges Barjonnet

Georges Emile Barjonnet is one of the most underappreciated French bow makers of the 20th century. He spent his career working for other bow makers and firms, including Emile August Ouchard, Eugène Cuniot-Hury, the Thibouville-Lamy firm and finally Roger Gerome. Bows which bear his stamp are unusual: this has meant that his very fine work has gone less noticed than that of his peers.

About this violin bow

This bow was made in Mirecourt and bears the brand of the violin maker Georges Apparut. It weighs 60 grams and the mounts are of silver and ebony. The round stick measures 730 mm in length.

How does it sound?
