Lockey Hill was descended from one of the most famous violin making families in history. His grandson, William Ebsworth Hill would go on to found W.E. Hill & Sons, a violin making and dealing firm that would become a corner stone in the violin market for next 150 years!
This violin is a wonderful example on Lockey's work. It is built on an Amatese pattern of larger proportions, but with a more powerfully flat arch. It is suitable for all types of modern use and from a time when English makers were beginning to transition from Staineresque models into more Cremonese ones.
