    I think it might be in the French style, though this is an uneducated guess and based purely on functionality. The frog looks like it would be held in the French style bowhold. The German hold would be better with the larger style frog, as the frog is sort of cupped in the hand.Also the point/tip of the bow is carved in the Voirin style, which is more of a gradual slope, as opposed to the more, almost right angle of the German style. This doesn't always apply, but it seems to be a common style in my limited experience of bows.

    It's French bow that has unfortunately lost it's camber, probably from being left tightened.
