Thoughts On This Stick


Recommended Posts

Just acquired another stick for the collection with no visible brand. Looks to be early 1900's and decent work and very good quality wood. The frog has a pinned underside and inlaid small and large heel plates. The adjuster seems original to the bow and is not pinned. I believe I have seen similar adjusters on bows attributed to various country of origin. Thanks for the help.

I am curious as to how you attribute it to early 19th century.

Can you share a picture of the mortice?

Here is a pic of the mortice. I’m guessing age on the basis of the original owner but I could be wrong.

Looks more like early 20th Century to me.

I'm laughing at myself! I meant early 1900's. Although sometimes I feel like when I get up in the morning I was born in the early 19th century

Nickel, right? That’s what it looks like, but sometimes it’s hard to tell

I believe faceplate is original and I think it is nickel alloy despite some darker tarnish.
