The October sales were interesting this year with less quality than usual, although there were a few good things and one or two excellent examples. Digging through boxes and boxes of bows led to a few very clean, good playing bows, but sadly I was outbid on all of them except one.
A very substantial part of my job is helping musicians purchase good solid investments at the right price, in the right condition. When you're buying from auction, you need a keen eye, which explains why out of approximately 750 lots, I only purchased one for my clients in London.
Get in touch if you'd like to purchase a beautiful french bow!
Really looking forward to seeing my hilarious colleagues in Vichy later in the year!
