John Wilkinson


Violin maker
(1889 – 1961)

Violinist-turned-maker, who carried out restorations for and sold instruments through J.&A. Beare Ltd in London for four decades. After a war injury sustained in the Battle of the Somme in 1918, Wilkinson lost much of the use of his left wrist. By using a T-shaped splint he was able to continue making. Few of his instruments were labelled, although he sometimes used a nom-de-plume label: "Gennaro Lanari ...Read More Fecit Napoli Anno 19--". He is speculated to have made over 900 instruments, including many violas. Read Less
