 A  bow by Claude Auguste Thomassin, the Raffin certificate states made in collaboration with Claude Thomassin, this implies the involvement of a second maker who may have been his cousin Victor Thomassin or one of his assistants. Claude Thomassin studied with Charles Nicolas Bazin. The bow is signed on the stick C.Thomassin à Paris. This is a fine bow with an excellent straight stick of dark honey patina with nickel mounts. Some blemishes but very minor, overall a nice honest bow. Circa 1905. Just rehaired. An unusual and rare bow!
