W.E. Hill + Sons "W.E.H + S" silver-mounted violin bow
W.E. Hill and Sons, for a time one of the most authoritative and prestigious violin dealers in the world, also had their own workshops, making fine violins in the Anglo-French tradition, excellent bows, and luxury cases. Their bows came in several grades, distinguished by the stamp on the stick. This fine, octagonal violin bow is stamped “W.E. H & S”, classifying it as a bow in their second-to-top grade. It sits steadily on the string during fast legato strokes, bounces cleanly and crisply, and articulates well in all parts of the stick, making it a reliable and versatile bow for an advanced player.
