Anyone familiar with this English maker?

Recommended Posts

Hi has anyone heard of Charles Bird who according to his label was a pupil of Paul Bailly. Inside it says Arthur Richardson has remodelled and revarnished it.

I read that Paul Bailly worked in London for a short period so I assume this chap could have worked with him at some stage but I cannot find anything in my reference books under Charles Bird. Any thoughts on the violin itself?

It looks like a very nice English violin of the period, more in the style of Chanot than Paul Bailly ... pity the varnish isn't original
