Bow I/d - assume German

Recommended Posts

Is the slight tapering of the chamfer common in German bows? Just thinking that a lot I have seen are more running as a straight parallel..mind you I do see a lot of rubbish...

The bow looks to me like a good Markneukirchen bow, pre 1930

Great thank you Martin.

Can one assume a bow whose (original) adjuster lacks pins is German?

Phrasing the question another way:  The normal assumption seems to be that a bow like this* is either German or French.  Would a French adjuster always be pinned, allowing one to assume that a bow whose (original) adjuster lacks pins is German ?

*By a "bow like this" I mean a bow of a certain age that is obviously European -- not Japanese, Chinese, Brazilian, etc.

What era would a "certain age" be?
