Bow Thoughts

Here another nice silver mounted octagonal bow for thoughts from our experts. The stick is very well carved and looks to be a nice grade pernambuco with screws for the slide with one being filed down. I cannot find any pins in the adjuster however it looks to have a second cut. Also cannot make out any brand.  Thanks for the help.

What is the weight? I’m wondering if it’s a viola bow. 
I would guess early 20th century good Markneukirchen.

No…it’s definitely a violin bow.  It’s about 59gms and the frog is petite which may be difficult to tell in the pics. I thought adjuster and head leans more French. Why are you thinking German?  Thanks for the thoughts!

The frog with the double pearl ring is typical German, I'm also thinking I can see the rails at the pearl slide..

I have to laugh, I thought the same thing at first glance. I had to put my glasses on and it does not have a rail.

With this sort of mop (probably river oyster) I usually expect the rails. It looks as if it could be silver, what is relative rare to find, usually they used nickel for these even at silver mounted frogs.

The head model could be a Pajeot copy, what could point toward a Knopf workshop which used this, but that would be highly speculative. Maybe it’s older than I assumed in the first place.

You are correct again. The rail is silver. I started to clean the one area and it is definitely tarnished and comes off black.
