Description: Mirecourt bow maker Eugène Cuniot, known as "Cuniot-Hury," trained and worked with his father until his father's death in 1884, when Cuniot-Hury took over the firm. Mirecourt was in the midst of tremendous growth as a center of the violin trade, and in particular the influence of Charles Nicolas Bazin held sway in bow making circles. Cuniot-Hury adopted a Bazin-style frog and button while retaining the more powerful head of his previous model.
This particular bow is Cuniot’s “Tourte” model and is in excellent condition. The round stick of dark brown pernambuco is mounted with silver and ebony. It responds quickly and produces a bright sounding tone with an excellent staccato. Certified by Jean-François Raffin. Weight: 58.3 grams.
