      Full description

      This octagonal silver-mounted bow exhibits all the personal characteristics of Gillet's work and shows the strength that makes his bow so searched by great musicians. This bow portrays the moment of his highest experience and skills, the deeply personal, consistent approach, and the core inspiration by the work of Peccate, which is notable in the strong and precise chamfer, and the head's straight cheeks. The highlight of this bow is the amazing quality of the red-brown pernambuco wood octagonal stick.
