GERMANY – behind the frog on the stick.

This is a violin bow from the late 1940’s to early 1950’s. The bow is stamped “SIVORI and also stamped “GERMANY” behind the frog on the stick. This Sivori violin bow was brought to America by the Scherl & Roth Company dealers in instruments and bows. The bows were sold to many violin shops in the states from 1950-1970. This bow is in good condition and has been fully gone over here at the shop. The bow is pernambuco, round in section, sterling silver and has a blind eye classic frog. The mother of pearl slide goes the entire length up to the heel. The stick has a tinsel winding that I felt added to the character of the bow. I did not replace it. It adds to the charm of the bow and is still very functional. I replaced the leather thumb grip. The endscrew button is solid silver and the head and the frog are in excellent condition.
