Cool My new main bow..

I recently bought a beautiful French bow stamped "E.Sartory A Paris" but is considered to have been made by Morizot. It's 135 grams and the playing hair length is 21". This is my new personal main bow for the upcoming season.

Cool a few more pics..

The Frog has whats known as a Chavelle repair, the upper frog against the slide has new grafted ebony, well matched. A fine old repair. Also, the pins in the silver screw look to be replaced as well when repaired as pins can come loose over time. Circa 1950 +/-.
