Made in Germany circa 1920’s this octagonal viola bow was actually made by an unknown worker of very good skill. E.M.B. stands for Music Education Bureau; E.M.B. bows were made by individual bowmakers and sold to the Bureau in Germany who then sold them to American teacher’s colleges and music schools. Pernambuco specie, octagonal-section, sterling silver mount, ebony frog, and a sterling silver adjuster. The beautiful ebony frog is blind, and the bow has a nice weight and plays very well.
