Mars Auguste Husson was a master bow maker whos work is very similar to that of André Vigneron under whom he studied as well as with C.N.Bazin. He was born on March 1st. 1870 and there is speculation that this is why he was given the first name Mars, however he only ever used his middle name Auguste. This example of his work is a fine bow with a strong octagonal pernambuco stick with silver mounts. It is stamped below the frog A Husson - Paris. The bow was made around 1930 towards the end of his life. A lovely rare bow for player and collector!
