4 bows

Recommended Posts

Hi again,
I am very interested to know what do you think about this 4 bows. My knowledge about bows is null and I am conjecturing about origin and age. Could you help me?

Markneukirchen fancy bows, c. 1880-1900, in Abeille wood. 3 and 4 are faced in ivory. #1 has a bone button.

That's what I see, anyway.

I think the value would be relatively low, but there are fiddlers that like them. They have to be straight and have no condition issues at all. I would guess that the last one might be the most desirable. Maybe $400? Less for the others? I'm out of touch with these things, I used to see them a lot back on the east coast, they weren't very valuable but of this stuff seems to be getting more interesting to some.

Yes, I am one of this fiddlers!

All of them are straight and with no problems, and the 1 and 2 work really well in the strings.

Here is a page from the 1908 Sears catalog showing some bows similar to yours.

A pic of a bow similar to their $2.80 one.

I think old inexpensive bows are neat.
