Violin Bow by the Morizot Frères, Mirecourt
This violin bow has now sold.
About the Morizot FrèresThe brothers Morizot were a collection of five brothers, the sons of the bow maker Louis Morizot. The brothers took over the Mirecourt workshop of their father in 1937.
They had a very strong work ethic and each had a clearly defined role within the workshop, a bit like Snow White´s seven dwarves but focused on frogs, buttons and cutting mortices. Their output was prolific and demand for the bows of the Morizot workshop was high.
About the bowThis violin bow is stamped Perelli, one of several shops which bought unstamped bows from the Morizot brothers. The bow weighs 61 grams and the mounts are of nickel and ebony. The stick is round and measures 731 mm in length.
How does it play?This bow makes a warm and generous sound. Although it plays readily off the string, it is unlikely to wrest control from the hands of the player, instead feeling comfortable and reliable.
ConditionThe condition is very good.
CertificationThe bow comes with the certificate of Jean-François Raffin.
