This Stradivari model violin by George bears a different printed label from the previous violin and is dated 1830. His hand is quite distinct from that of Joseph and can perhaps be detected in some of Vincenzo’s later instruments. George is believed to have been making guitars for his younger brother Louis by the time this violin was made and it may well have been sold through Louis’s shop on the High Street, St Giles. The blocks and linings are made from spruce with the C-bout linings probably either butted up to the corner blocks or morticed in very slightly. According to the dendrochronological examination, the bass side of the front dates from 1720 and the treble from 1722, and the wood shows an affinity with spruce used in England during the early 1700s, particularly by Daniel Parker.
