Smudged brand stamp -- old violin bow?

Recommended Posts

A friend asked me to take a look at this violin bow, but I can barely make anything out from the stamp. It is nearly illegible.

All I can say is that it is silver mounted with a round stick and the wood looks quite nice. It also feels rather heavy. We don't live very near a good luthier, so we've decided for now to ask the internet. I'm afraid I don't know much about old bows...:unsure:

Does anyone know why the stamp would be so smudged? Is that just caused from prolonged use?

Thanks for the help!

Probably SUESS and the bow looks like one. The stamp is usually all upper case letters but the first ` s` is  larger.

Good call! I've been scratching my head all day ...
