Victor Fetique

Victor Fetique worked with Charles Nicholas Bazin before moving to Paris to join the Caressa et Francais workshop after 1901. In 1913 Fetique established his own shop at 72 Rue Myrha in Paris. Victor Fetique won numerous competitions, and in 1925 received the prize "Premier Archetier de France." This bow dates from that year. The round stick is mounted in ebony and silver, and both face plate and adjuster are solid silver. It is an ideal playing weight at just over 59 grams. Please inquire for price.

William Watson

One of the finest bow makers to have been in the employ of the W. E Hill firm of London. He learned the trade there from William Retford, one of the most respected English bow makers. Watson joined Hill in 1945 and continued making bows for Hill's for seventeen years, until establishing his own shop in Buckinghamshire in 1962. The cello bow that we offer is mounted in ebony and gold, and is very supple and well balanced. In pristine condition, it is the work of a maker at the pinnacle of his craft.
