    This violin bow was made by Joseph Alfred Lamy pére (1850-1919) in around 1890 in Paris, France. Joseph Alfred began his apprenticeship with Claude Charles Nicolas Husson and in 1868 was employed by the Maison Gautrot in Château-Thierry. In 1876, Lamy became François-Nicolas Voirin’s apprentice and after Voirin died in 1885, Lamy set up his own business. His bows have become highly regarded for their playability and aesthetic. This bow comes with both a certificate and valuation from renowned expert Pierre Guillaume. 

    This violin bow is stamped ‘A LAMY A PARIS’ and weighs 55 grams. The stick has been rounded and is made from pernambucco. It measures 745mm in length and has silver lapping. The frog is made from ebony and is silver mounted with a pearl shell eye. It is in excellent condition for a bow of this age. 

    This bow has a strong stick that responds well to pressure. It has superb control throughout the length of the bow from the tip to the frog. The balance point is in the middle-lower half of the bow making it perfect for spiccato & ricochet. It has an immediate response time with minimal pressure needed. This bow has easy playability making bow strokes sound smooth & string crossings easy. This bow would be suitable for the professional musician or collector.
