Any Thoughts?

It’s a factory made bow. my first thought was, “Boy, the Chinese are making better stuff every day.”

The name is laser engraved, which should be an immediate giveaway, the mortise is cut with the router, the mother of pearl looks like what you see on every Chinese bow in the world.

I don’t know any thing at all, you just asked for thoughts so those are mine, but I’m also thinking I want another cup of coffee…

edit: Actually, the stamp may not be laser engraved, it looks like it might be actually branded, but that doesn’t mean anything.Actually, the stamp may not be laser engraved, it looks like it might be actually branded, but that doesn’t mean anything.

Seller claims to have bought this at a Vichy auction in the early 2000’s, if this helps...

I live in Texas, but I’ve heard many things about those auctions, and almost all of them involve spurious stuff, but I’m not the one to talk to you.I live in Texas, but I’ve heard many things about those options, and almost all of them involve spurious stuff, but I’m not the one to talk to you.

When pawnshops in Vichy go bankrupt, are the goods auctioned?  :huh:

If you were ever to go to Vichy, you would notice that outside the “Hotel des Vents” the streets are lined with French gypsies selling stuff out of the boots (trunks) of their cars

Last time I was there (pre covid) they got fines when the police arrived. Funny thing is there's a group of Gypsies buying the cheaper stuff at Vichy only to be shipped to Bordeaux/Marseille area to get a "make over" including new labels and stamps.
