Violin bow with inspiration from Adam and L. Tourte

Although this bow's overall design is copied from a particular Adam example, certain elements of the head profile and shaping are more in the style of L. Tourte.

The low frog height gives this bow a measure of stability often seen in original examples attributed to Adam.  As are many older bows, this frog is unlined.

In the style of many early makers such as Adam, both sterling silver button rings on this bow are octagonal, not round and were made using an octagonal mandrel.
