John Johnson violin

John Johnson violin


Made in London circa 1750 by John Johnson (c.1719 – c.1762).


This violin was used by an Australian professional orchestral violinist for several decades.  Imported to Australia in the 1960s by Sid Vyse, it has a very peculiar label presumably inserted by Vyse.  However we have carried out extensive research on the violin in London and believe it to be genuine and from Johnson’s London workshop.  Currently under light restoration and preparation for sale, it will be available soon.
