Maker: Arthur Joseph Vigneron
Description: Joseph Arthur Vigneron was born in 1851 in Mirecourt. He began studying bowmaking under his step-father Claude Nicolas Husson. After his step-fathers death in 1872, he worked for the Jean-Joseph Martin firm until leaving for Paris in 1880. While in Paris, Joseph worked for the Gand & Bernardel firm for eight years, until finally establishing himself independently in Paris in 1888. He worked alongside his son André until his death in 1905.
The stick is round and has a length of 72.65 cm. It is of an orange-brown pernambuco which has a few random figurations and is of very good quality. The model of the head is typical of Vigneron’s work from this period. The frog is of ebony and silver and has a mother-of-pearl eye encircled by a silver ring in each side. The button is of silver on ebony and its prominent collar has a single cut. At this time this bow is in excellent condition. Weight: 60.2 grams. Certified by Paul Childs.
