Who is onofre pomar?
Anyone knows who is Onofre Pomar? I recently bought a bow stamped with his name. Do you know which kind of bows ( german, french) are stamped with that name?
This definitely doesn't makes any sense in german language. Has to be anything else. Maybe Esperanto...?
There seem to be Spanish folks with this name.
Hello, i found a violin bow stamped with the name of: ONOFRE POMAR BARCELONA. I showed it to many violin friends and luthiers and they think it could be a french or german bow, made in the 1900 more or less. I made some research and I found he was a luthier and he worked in Barcelona between 1903 and 1930. I read that he took several bows from france and he stamped them. Thats what i wanted to know if someone heard that name before and which kind of bows could had bought in the past. I would post some photos of the bow, but I don’t know how I can do that...
Or, everyone can go over to maestronet, where you've posted the same inquiry--you could supply a link to those photos, in any case. It seems like you are getting useful information there, are you not?
Yeah! I am getting useful info but i’m not sure of what could be!! And i asked for the author in this case. Here you have the link in maestronet in case you want to help me: https://maestronet.com/forum/index.php?/topic/342571-old-french-violin-bow-probably-what-could-be/
Well, it does make sense in Spanish. Onofre is an old and fairly uncommon masculine name these days. Pomar is a surname which makes reference to... apples. There are some little towns in Spain with "Pomar" on its name because they were typically places in which apples were grown.
