Does anyone know anything about a Wheatstone violin?
A friend brought one from France and took it to a restorer to make it playable including, appropriately, a new bridge.
He said it seemed to be quite a good model maybe up to100 years old, but they can't find anything out about it.

Wheatstone was a well known maker of concertinas - C Wheatstone & Co. Haven't ever heard of a Wheatstone violin though.. might be worth asking the question over here

www.fiddleforum.com - lots of very knowledgeable people there on all things violin :)

Wheatstone claimed to be the inventor of the concertina but which system. Like Filton never knew he made anything else except the Wheatstone Bridge but maybe that is the joke?
