Description: The W. E. Hill and Sons firm was one of the longest lasting firms in the world, certainly in England. Their roots run deep, dating back to at least 1753 when Joseph Hill was crafting and restoring fine instruments. The firm continued to produce the highest standard of craftsmanship throughout the centuries. Many of the top bowmakers trained in the Hill and Sons firm, including James Tubbs, Arthur Bultitude, William Charles Retford, and many others. From this, the firm was able to gain a healthy reputation for producing the finest quality bows.
This cello bow is in excellent condition and made in 1970 by Malcolm Taylor. Malcolm Taylor joined the firm of W.E. Hill & Sons in 1949 and returned in 1956 after leaving for military service. He left the firm to pursue independent work as a bowmaker in 1973. Taylor's Hill bows bear the number 8.
Fitted with engraved gold in the ebony mountings, this bow is really a gorgeous example of the Hill’s work. Strong and powerful bow. Weight: 83.5 grams.
