Certificates & Documents

  • Certificate: W. E. Hill & Sons, London (1927)
  • Letter: W. E. Hill & Sons, London (1927) "The instrument was sold by John Betts about the beginning of the last century, which leads me to suppose that it was one of the fine 'Stradivarius' brought to this country, at that period, by the Italian players, amongst whom were Giardini, Viotti & Spagnoletti, who visited our shores."
