Violin bow by J.T.L. stamped Husson, Mirecourt, circa 1935
About J.T.L. bowsThe workshop of Jérôme Thibouville Lamy was based in Mirecourt and made a wide range of stringed instruments and bows. They were open for more than a century, closing their doors for the last time in 1969. The workshop was both large and prolific and examples of their work can be seen all around the world.
About the bowThis violin bow was made in Mirecourt around 1935 and is of swan head design.
The bow weighs 60 grams and the mounts are of nickel and ebony. The round stick measures 722 mm in length and is made of good quality pernambuco.
How does it play?As we tend to expect with swan head bows, this is a relatively soft stick. It works beautifully with a light bowing arm and a more direct, focussed instrument.
ConditionThe bow is in good condition.
