A beautiful German genuine pernambuco violin bow from the Dörfler Bogen Bow Company in Bubenreuth, Germany. This firm has been in business since 1940, and is one of Germany's best bow-making workshops known for quality, value and craftsmanship.

You can read about the company and the Model 15A here:

This full-size bow is model 15A. It is fine octagonal stick with made from 30-year-old pernambuco wood from Brazil. The stick is stamped “W. Dörfler.” The nickel-mounted frog is made with fine black ebony with mother-of-pearl eyes. The head is beautifully carved with crisp chamfers reminiscent of great H.R. Pfretzschner bows. It is in very good condition with the winding showing some wear, and some tiny chipping in the rear corners of the frog (see pictures).

The weight is 59g. The end-to-end length is 74.5 cm (29.3 inches).

The bow is straight and strong, well-cambered and balanced, and draws a lovely strong tone from my fiddles. It was recently re-haired.

The model 15A violin bow has an MSRP of $412. I am selling this one for $212, including free shipping to continental United States.

If you ever wished you could own a very good pernambuco bow, this is a great chance to get one at a bargain price.

The un-retouched pictures provide detailed close-ups of bow, and show the condition as described.

The bow will be carefully packed a strong unbendable container, insured and shipped by UPS.

Please feel free to message me with any questions or requests for additional pictures.
