Begun in 1880 by William Ebsworth Hill, the London-based company of W. E. Hill & Sons grew to become one of the most important in violin making history for over 100 years. As leading experts on historic Cremonese instruments, W. E. and his four sons handled the restoration and sales of the worlds finest instruments, including those of Stradivari and Guarneri. Particularly known for their bows, Hill & Sons employed numerous top bow makers, including Albert Leeson (1904 - 1946), who made this violin bow.
