George Leon Lamy cello bow
Catalog ID: C-2184

Born into the third generation of the Lamy family of French luthiers, bow maker George Léon Lamy (1881–1915) was the youngest son of renowned archetier Joseph Alfred Lamy (“Lamy Père” 1850–1919), and brother of Hippolyte Camille Lamy (1875–1942). He worked in his father’s bow workshop in Paris before serving in World War I, where he died in 1915, cutting short his promising career. His style is close to that of his father, and it is often to distinguish the two makers. While rare, his bows are very highly regarded.
