English cello bow, branded “LUCAS” on the frog, made c.1810. Length 70.6cm. In good original condition, crack in adjuster. This bow is interesting as an example of how open frog bows were often played, the wrapping, holding the strings against the frog, is from the early 19th century.
Made by Alexander Lucas, a pupil of the cellist Robert Lindley who, in 1811, took over the Catherine Street in Salisbury, workshop of Benjamin Banks from his two sons
