This is a nickel mounted violin bow, plays well, 58 grams. Marked "Germany" on lower facet  and has this stamp on players side far back on stick.

Thoughts on this? Sorry for lousy photos but last two of stamp are pretty clear.

Thanks

Interesting.  I have a bow (nickel-mounted, 59g, plays well) with the same brand, but with HOMA stamped above the frog on the same facet.  On the other side of the stick there is another stamp:  D.R.S.M. 870255 (or 670255?).  I gather HOMA was a Hoyer brand name and the DRSM number is a corporate registration number, but don't know in what period that brand and number were in use.  Any info would be appreciated.

In the period between the two wars, Hoyer Markneukirchen was one of the largest bow Workshops, where many of the German bow makers learnt their craft, and was the standard issue bow in a student outfit. After WWII it was taken by the USSR as war reparations. Mr. Hoyer moved to Schwanden near Brienz in Switzerland and formed the Schweizer Bogenbau AG. He passed away shortly after, and Siegrid Finkel took it over. The firm in Schwanden is still there in the 3rd. Generation.
