Lott, John Frederick
B.1804, d.1870, London
The finest of the nineteenth century English copyists, and in some ways superior to many of his contemporary Parisian makers, with some of whom he was involved in trade. Taught by his father, John Frederick Lott II (1776-1853), he also worked for several London workshops before embarking on a period of travel. Established his own shop in the city shortly after 1840. His copies of Guarneri del Gesu are particularly sought-after. George Frederick Lott (1801-1869), his elder brother, followed a similar but less-distinguished career in the London violin trade.
