Unusual Bow Mortice

Recommended Posts

A bow with an unusual head mortise came in yesterday to be rehaired.

Unusual in that it widens out at what is normally the narrowest point.  It's a good quality modern cello bow stamped "J. F. LEE."  Does anyone here know the reason for this shape?

Would that be the same as the “Top Hat Mortise”...?...

No.  The "top hat mortise" has little lateral projections at the wide end of the mortice.  This mortise has them at the narrow end.

...Is it a Baroque bow ?

No.
