Hello Recently stumbled upon a nice gold and tortoise shell peccatte bow in a small auction. Here is the link https://www.liveauctioneers.com/item/57761714_gold-mounted-dominique-peccatte-violin-bow-attrib The bow was from the estate of huguette clark with christies tag. From my untrained eye, the item is a peccatte? why did christies move their auction items to a small auction to sell? My conspiracy theory is that someone was trying to prevent the bow from being auctioned at christies and tried to get it cheap by moving it to a small auction where not many people will notice it.
https://www.liveauctioneers.com/item/43188454_early-23-violin-no-makers-name-evident I came across this when I was looking at lot 88a, a bow by Jas Tubbs (which has mysteriously been removed from the sale). I know its a bit of a stretch, but since bow and fiddle were likely a team, it may be that this might be quite a pleasant sounding fiddle with a bit of love?
