I enjoyed looking at this bow and appreciate the surprise one might feel looking at the price. Of course this is as much a valuable antique and work of art more than it is a player's bow. I have a little eye candy to share.

A friend shared some photos he had of an original Tourte bass bow taken just before auction.

It has obviously been kept by a collector and rarely played. It is a work of art. My understanding is it was bought by the French government and is on display in a museum.
Enjoy
