Paul Heberlein – Gold Mounted Violin Bow


From 1896 to 1907 Paul Heberlein learned and practiced the craft of bowmaking under the tutelage of H.R. Pfretzschner. Opening his own shop in 1907 in Markneukirchen, Heberlein enjoyed a long career as a renowned bowmaker. His bows were popular in Europe and America; his brother Theodor Heberlein of Indianapolis and William Moennig of Philadelphia were his primary customers. This octagonal-section pernambuco bow displays the craftsmanship of this master maker: gold mount, Parisian eyes with gold accent, gold button, and sterling silver winding.
