Bourguignon bow
The round stick of select pernambuco, weighing 62 grams and very nicely balanced, this fine bow is strong and resilient with good spring. In excellent overall condition, the lapping is real whalebone and the new hair best quality unbleached Mongolian white. The full silver-mounted frog is firm to the handle and extremely comfortable.

Born near Mirecourt, Bourguignon apprenticed to Chevrier when only 13 years old, working with some of the
best Parisian makers before moving to the workshop of Mougenot at Brussels, whose business he acquired in 1910.

His violins became very poular with Belgian players and his bows, now relatively rare, are much sought after, attracting high praise from players and connoisseurs alike.
