I once owned a beautiful L. Marizot bow with the ivory frog. I purchased it new for $120 from Fred Batchelder of the Philadelphia Orchestra in maybe 1968. One day I foolishly leaned it up against something. The bow tipped over and smacked on the tile floor. The ivory snapped off along the edge of the D ring. It was never the same. I replaced it with an ebony frog and it worked fine. To break that ivory frog hurt. It was like a piece of China, fragile. I wouldn't buy another for myself. They are beautiful!
