Albert Nurnberger "picture-bow" Stanhope Lens replacement. Features the usual image of German Master bow-maker Franz Albert Nurnberker II in his Markneukirchen workshop. Albert is seated at his workbench and holding a bow as if to check the camber and straightness. The font is an exact reproduction of that found in the original Nurnberger bows. It reads "Albert Nürnberger.".  This stanhope is accurate in every way and imperceptible as a replacement, even to an accredited expert. This lens will restore the value to a missing lens in a Nurnberger picture bow as such bows are devalued by nearly half when the lens is missing.

The dimensions of this lens are 3mm diameter by 7.5mm long. Most of the Nurnberger bows require lenses of a diameter of about 2.6mm-2.7mm. You can have the lens made to this or any other smaller diameter for an extra charge. It is also possible to have the lens made slightly shorter upon request. To ascertain the proper size needed for restoration, slide drill bits through the hole in the frog increasing the diameter of the bit until you reach a bit which will no longer pass through. The last drill bit which will fit is the proper diameter to have your replacement lens made. Select that diameter from the drop-down list when ordering.
