      Full description

      This exceptional and in mint condition cello bow is among the finest pieces ever crafted by Gehard Penzel: an example of the highest standards achieved by the post-war German bow-making generation: fine-crafted, precise, and robust. This elegant bow has a perfectly shaped octagonal light-brown Pernambuco wood stick made in his personal style, in which it is possible to notice the influence of the style of the Peccatte model used, especially in the shape of the head. The masterpiece is crowned with the most beautiful ebony, silver, and mother-of-pearl mounting.

      Gerhard Penzel

      Gerhard Penzel journey into bow making began under the guidance of his great-uncle, E.M. Penzel, where he imbibed the essence of precision and artistry. Following his formative years, Gerard ventured to Stuttgart, where he collaborated with renowned bow maker Karl Mages. Gerard's passion for craftsmanship and innovation remained steadfast, culminating in his role as a leading figure in the violin bow making community.Learn more

      Violin by Anqi Ni, Cremona, 2024

      By Anqi Ni  |  

      This violin, inspired by Giuseppe Ornati, was crafted by the hands of a skillful rising-star maker. It beautifully combines Anqi's contemporary vision with her Cremonese traditional handcraftsmanship. For us, its highlight is the superb sculpted scroll delineated by the black chamfers.
