Dominique Peccatte, Paris c. 1850, Silver/Ebony

A magnificent example of this great maker’s work. The bow stick is made from figured pernambuco wood of a warm brown color. The tip plate is ivory. The winding is silver wire. The ebony frog is silver mounted and inlaid with large mother-of-pearl eyes. The button is ebony with two silver rings and is inlaid with a mother-of-pearl eye. The bow weighs 60 grams. It is a robust stick with strength and suppleness which imparts a broad and rich tone to the player’s instrument. It is in mint condition and is original in all its parts as attested to by certificates from Kenneth Warren & Son, Chicago 1983 and Jean Jacques Millant, Paris 1982. This is a fine and rare bow in all respects.
