A silver & tortoiseshell-mounted violin bow by Joseph Henry

Paris, circa 1855

Born and trained in Mirecourt in the first half of the 19th century, Joseph Henry moved to Paris to work for the Chanot workshop and later perfected his skills under the guidance of Dominique Peccatte. His work is renowned for the high quality of the craftsmanship and for his attention to detail. This bow certainly represents the peak of Henry’s abilities as a craftsman and it was made shortly after his collaboration with Pierre Simon ended. From 1855 he made a series of outstanding tortoiseshell-mounted bows for Gand Frères of which this bow is a beautifully preserved example.
