Description

A fine 7/8 violin and a characteristic example of this violin makers work

Charles Harris II (1791 – 1851)
Charles Harris was born the son of a violin maker, with whom he trained. Following a fortuitous inheritance, he ascended to the aristocracy at the age of 37 and left violin making behind for more glamorous pursuits until he squandered his fortune in the mid-1830s. It was around this time that Harris seems to have taken up his craft again, and came into contact with William Ebsworth Hill. After the death of his father in 1835, Henry Lockey, W.E. Hill was evidently in need of additional guidance and traveled to Oxford to study with Harris. Thus, despite his checkered association to the craft, Harris indirectly influenced late 19th and 20th-century British violin making, and his signed instruments that date from this period show fine workmanship that can be reminiscent of Gagliano.

The back in two pieces of maple of irregular medium-light curl ascending across the back from the centre joint. The ribs, pegbox, and scroll of similar curl. The front is in two pieces of spruce of medium grain. The varnish of a rich red-orange colour on a yellow ground.
