French violin bow by Claude Joseph Fonclause. This violin bow has a special feature: the frog and legs are older than the bar. The rod is a very elegant work by Claude Joseph Fonclause from around 1840. Frog and Legs are an early work by Etienne Pajeot, still without a track, built around 1820. Both go together perfectly. The rod has good strength and the bow has a total weight of 57.5 grams.
A Fonclause violin bow in silver is normally traded between € 36,000 and € 46,000 today. The low price is due to a small repair at the end of the rod and the frog and the leg from Etienne Pajeot.
