Born in Paris in 1831, the younger son of George Chanot I (his elder brother Adolphe died of tuberculosis in 1854), Georges II moved to London in 1851, working for Charles Maucotel, and from 1858 in his own shop at 86 Wardour Street. He worked closely in his father’s style, making reproductions of Stradivari, Guarneri and Maggini violins, and was a leading expert and dealer in London until his death in 1895. His shop was continued by his son Joseph Anthony (1865-1936), his elder son Georges Adolphe (1855-1923) having moved to Manchester in 1879, where he also established a successful business.
