Although that seems the most likely scenario
(particularly since both guitarists were working a lot
with the same producer, Shel Talmy, at the time) Page
himself says using a violin bow on a guitar was
suggested to him by violinist David McCallum Sr. (the
father of actor David McCallum) while the two were on
a session together in the mid-60's.
