This illustrated book presents gold-mounted violin, viola and cello bows by French, English and German masters of all eras of bow making. It shows in fascinating detail works of art from three centuries, in which masters of bow making demonstrated their high skills in wood, ivory and tortoiseshell processing as well as their skill as a goldsmith. Covering masterpieces starting from 1790, many of them published for the first time.
