1 Violin-Viola Bow Slide of our premium Philippine Mother of Pearl shell.
Our Mother of Pearl shell is a specially sourced form of MOP from the Philippines where the shell is spun, by nature, with layers of highly iridescent white pearl and an occasional ultra thin layer of golden color pearl. The golden micro-layers are not seen as gold directly to the eye but this feature gives the MOP from this shell a particular brilliance and light catching quality not seen in other MOP shell.
This is not your average Mother of pearl.
Each slide measures 1mm thick X 8.5mm x 30mm
The photo shows 10 slides for conveyance of variations but your purchase is for one slide. You can purchase as many as you like by changing the quantity. Please do not email or call asking for a certain look or shade of color as we do not think it is fair to select out special slides for any customer. We randomly select individual slides as they are ordered. For serious makers we suggest purchasing in groups of ten so you have a goodly selection for your various applications. In any group of 10 you will have some plain Jane-Rhoda types (for student bows) and you will have some Bo Derek-Michelle Pfeiffer types for higher end bows.
All shell products are legally imported to us from legitimate and recognized sources. All US permits are utilized when importing - there are three different US Import permits required for each shipment.
US customers only.
While it is legal to sell and ship internationally the permit process for each shipment is time consuming and costly thus negating the feasibility of selling beyond the 50 States.
