Michael Taylor cello bow
Silver mounted ebony frog with Parisian eyes, round stick stamped TAYLOR, 81.9 grams
Michael Taylor (b.1949) is the foremost English bowmaker of our time, and founded the bowmaking department at the former Ealing Strings where he worked for over twenty years. In 1995, following the death of Ealing Strings’ founder Malcolm Sadler, Michael left to work in his own workshop, first in Hedgerley, Buckinghamshire, before relocating to Spain. This bow is a copy of a Sartory cello bow well known to Michael, and was commissioned by us. As one of the last bows made by Michael before his recent retirement, it is in unused condition and is one of the finest examples of his work.
