The renowned cellist Jacqueline du Pré used this bow for a number of years, including on her famous 1967 recording of the Elgar Concerto filmed by Christopher Nupen. Weighing 90 grams, it is a fine example of this type of slightly oversized bow sold by Louis Panormo. Once again it has chamfers running down the front of the head, with a broad band of hair at both the frog and the head end of the stick. The later adjuster was made by William Watson.
