Quick question: material of the frog?

I thought these rosewood frog, brass mounted bows with this particular colour of the stick were Japanese. I have seen slightly better grades of these but yes, generally not worth rehairing

I do not know exactly what kind of wood the frog is but from your picture it appears to be a very inexpensive bow.  The brass ferrule is a tip off as well. Sorry to be the bearer of ill tidings.

Don't worry, I don't own this bow ;). I've started to educate myself on violin and bow makers and making and am searching the internet for pictures and information that help me learn.

So this is rosewood?
