Comments: This Bow first came in as a CN Bazin. Bazin employed and trained many of the classic bow makers in his shop including both Fetique brothers. When I first looked at the head, I thought to myself, 'made by V.Fetique in the Bazin shop' but continued to market the bow as a Bazin, possibly made by Fetique. Then, I sent the Bow out to a well known dealer/appraiser and his first comments were 'I am leaning towards Victor Fetique' as the maker of that bow. Then, the Bow came back with Papers as a c.1920 V.Fetique. Although early in his production, his hand and his work. This Bow loves strings!
