**FR HELLMER** – Prague Violin Bow


click picture to enlarge

The former Czechoslovakia gives us this deftly executed trade bow branded **FR HELLMER** (it is also branded CZECHOSLOVAKIA on the underside of the bow). The skill of the bow maker is reflected in the smooth transition from the octagonal shape of the stick to the classically shaped head, and the sterling silver mount contrasts well against the pernambuco. An ebony frog with lovely mother-of-pearl Parisian eyes and slide and a three-piece silver and ebony button finish the classic look of this bow.
