François Lotte cello bow - Silver mounted - ivory frog.

A great and super rare French cello bow by François Lotte with Raffin certicate .ca 1947.
This is one of the best F. Lotte bows I ever played.

François Lotte was one of the great French bow makers the 20th century.

Silver mounted ivory frog, and one-piece silver button, we have seen only one like this one.

This cello bow is one of the finest Francois Lotte cello bows we have seen so far.

The round stick is dark brown and is made of first class pernambuco, a strong but flexible bow with a great balance.

A very elegant and fine executed head.

This bow is in a good condition, ready to play.

A good professional bow with strong tone production, plenty of detail..
The total length of the stick is around 69,1 cm and the weight of the bow is 81 gr.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
François Lotte (1889–1970) was a French archetier and bow maker.

Son of Georges Lotte who was a luthier and violin maker in the Vuillaume shop. François Lotte received his training in the best French tradition, initially apprenticed with Bazin. In 1919 he married Marguerite Ouchard, daughter of Émile François Ouchard and sister of Émile Auguste Ouchard.
François later went on to work for Eugène Cuniot-Hury (between 1922-1925).
By 1926 he set up his own business in Paris.

His bows are often stamped with the stamp of the shop or maker he was working for or not stamped at all. His bows are elegant, precise,
excellent in workmanship and combine good playing and sound qualities. 
He left a large number of bows of very good quality. Many bows are mounted in silver as well as maillechort/nickel mounted.

His son Roger François Lotte, born 1922, took over the shop around 1960.
François the father continued to make bows until his sudden death in 1970.
