1920s August Edwin Prager 4/4 Violin Bow


This bow is a friend's and is marked with the August Edwin Prager mark -- a somewhat hot-to-trot maker from Markneukirchen in Germany. Considering the instrument it came with my guess is it's a 1920s-30s bow. It's obviously needing to be rehaired at the minimum, but the (round) stick is nice and straight and hasn't warped. I'm also assuming it's pernambuco.

This came in the case of a nicer-quality old violin. Please let me know if this interests you.
