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
That is a Modern Bow all around.. lol
