Description: Son of Emile Auguste Ouchard, Bernard Ouchard began crafting bows at the young age of 13. He moved to Paris with his father in 1941 where he incorporated the Hill-style underside into his making. After serving his country in WWII, Bernard joined the Vidoudez firm in Geneva, Switzerland, on the recommendation of Lapierre. In 1971, he left the firm and became a professor of bow making at the Ecole de lutherie in Mirecourt.
This stunning cello bow is in mint condition with wonderful ivory and gold engraved mountings. It has a weight of 84.5 grams. The stick is very strong and the bow draws a rich, penetrating tone. The bow was made by Bernard while he was working with the firm of Vidoudez in Geneva, Switzerland and bears the engraving of Genève on the end cap of the button.
