Ex-Max Millant

A gold-mounted exhibition violin bow after Dominique Peccatte by Eugène Sartory

Paris, 1939

Sartory’s exhbition bows are always of very fine quality, and this one is no exception. It has a stick made of exquisite pernambucco, which is firm and responsive, perfectly suited to the demands of today’s musicians. The bow is based on a Dominique Peccatte model and features an adjuster with two gold bands and an ebony frog with pearl eyes, a combination rarely seen in Sartory’s work. Sartory listed this bow as No. 17 in his inventory for an exhibition in New York in 1939. It is one of the only bows of this type in existence and is pictured in Vol. II of Etienne Vatelot’s Les Archets Français on page 824.
The bow formed part of the collection of Bernard Millant’s father, Max Millant.
