Bow, what kind of wood?

The head looks nice.  What does the rest of it look like?

Nothing real exciting.  It's a nickel mount with standard frog design and abalone eye, octoganol design.  Prob. a factory made stick some 100+ years old.  Assuming it's the original that came with the violin.

Student bows of that era are some times quite nice. If it's nickel mounted it probably isn't worth a fortune but may be better than you are thinking. Photos?

I'll post some when I get a chance.  One issue I have with the stick is it's a bit light at 46 gm less hair.  I'm assuming this is due to removal of the grip silver wire.  Trying to determine if it will be worth the effort to rehair and service the bow.
