Bow Type: Viola
Item #: XXX-757
Price: Upon Request
Maker: Charles Alfred Bazin
Description: Son of Charles Louis Bazin, Charles Alfred Bazin first studied bow making with his father in Mirecourt beginning in 1922. He showed early promise as an interpreter of the family's signature style and as a businessman, and upon returning from WWII he set up his own shop in Mirecourt. After Charles Louis' retirement in 1952, Charles Alfred inherited the family workshop, retaining only one assistant, and later worked alone. Unlike his father and grandfather Charles Nicolas, Bazin refused to provide bows to other firms for sale, and though he had fewer clients as a result, he remained remarkably prolific until his retirement in the 1980s.
This particular bow is in excellent condition. The round stick branded CHARLES BAZIN-FRANCE is made of dark brown pernambuco and is 72.8 cm long. The frog is ebony with silver mountings and inlaid parisian eyes. The button is ebony with a full silver cap. Weight: 70.7 grams
