Maker of Violins, Violas and Cellos


Chadwick London Violin ca. 1900

The Chadwick London Violin was made around 1900.  The Chadwick Violin Shop in London, England imported these instruments, mostly from Germany, and sold them in their London shop.  They also sold many instruments that were imported into the U.S. via catalogues of Sears and Roebuck as well as Montgomery Wards. 

Their violins were very well made and most were modeled after those made by Stradivarius.  This particular violin is in very good condition with quick response and a robust warm round tone.  The oil varnish is a warm golden brown and in very good condition.  The two piece spruce top has fine to medium straight grain, and the two piece back is of well flamed maple.  The sides are of similar maple, and the neck/scroll are of a slightly wider flame.
