George Pyne (1852-1921) from West Ham, London was a violinist and maker. He worked for Edward Withers for 20 years and is credited with about 500 violins and violas on classical Cremonese models.

George Pyne is one of England’s greatest unsung copyists.

Label George Pyne Maker London Anno 1915′.

‘An out and out patriotic Englishman, spiritually and mentally, so much so as to sometimes render his independence injurious to his bank book. To ask him as to copy an old Italian violin, give it a worn appearance and other tricks of the trade, including the insertion of fictitious labels, was anathema to him, an act of unpatriotic suicide of British prestige, honour and prestige.’ Wm. Henley.
