: At the May 1995 Skinner Auction in Boston an Emile
: Dupree Bow was sold for $1,495. A dealer might sell
: it for double or triple that amount. You can, however,
: purchase a superior new bow from a Gold Medal winner
: like David Forbes for $2,500. It's always best to shop.
: I can't speak for your teacher, but $500 doesn't buy
: much of a bow today.
Thanks for the info. I already own the bow, and am
just curious to know more about it. (Not looking
to buy or sell.) It was purchased along with a
nice violin at a pawn shop for $230 (the shop
apparently had no idea of the actual value).
My teacher really likes both the violin and the
bow, and says the whole outfit should be worth no
less than $1500, so I'm ahead by at least $1300
Anyone else have more info to contribute? I can't
seem to find much on the 'net about Dupree bows.
We did see a book in the library which was
published in the 1970's... There were a couple
of Dupree bows in there, listed as being worth
$500-750 at that time.
