Joseph Anthony Chanot

The younger son and successor of Georges II, born in London in 1865, Joseph Anthony was a prolific maker of violins and bows and also had an early involvement in the revival of viol making, advanced by the musician and musicologist Arnold Dolmetsch. The Chanot shop in Wardour Street was largely overshadowed by the firm of W.E. Hill & Sons, founded in New Bond Street in 1882, which went on to dominate the fine violin trade in London and throughout the world in the twentieth century. Joseph Anthony died in 1936, and the shop was continued by his sons William Arthur (1899-1966) and John Alfred (1904-1981).
