I currently trying out a Poirson bow. It is silver mounted and is stamped vuillaume. It is an EXCELLENT bow. However the dealer is asking 12,000 dollars for it. I have done some research with auction archives and found that most sell for around 3,000-7,000. However several violin shops ask more than 10,000 for these bows. Do people pay less at auction? Is the bow worth $12,000 dollars? Do you usually pay more for papers and documentation?
