Alfred Herrmann bow?

September 8, 2016 at 04:09 AM · I recently purchased a violin built in 1933 that came with what seems to be a nice bow that is marked "Alfred Herrmann" but I can't find much information about it on the Web.

Does anyone on the forum have any knowledge about this bow or the maker that they can share?
