Catalog ID: C-2868

Sixth generation bow maker Carl Albert Nürnberger (1885–1971) is one of the most important German makers of the 20th century. He studied in Markneukirchen under his father, Franz Albert Nürnberger (1854–1931), who modeled bows on those of the acclaimed French maker, François Xavier Tourte. Working with his brother Philip Paul (1882–1946), Carl Albert further refined their father’s model and exported the bows to the United States, labeling them “Albert Nürnberger”. Nürnberger bows were highly sought-after and owned by leading players of the 20th century, including Eugène Ysaÿe, Jan Kubelik, Fritz Kreisler, and David Oistrakh.
