George P. Matthews (1858-1929) was an English banjo maker in Birmingham England. Not only did he sell a wide range of instruments bearing his own name but he made banjos and zither-banjos for other wholesale and retail firms (such as Ball Beavon, Rose Brothers, J. Thibouville, Lamy & Co., Rose Morris & Co.) to brand as their own. This banjo comes with a highly engraved resonator by Joseph Riley & Son, another famed British Banjo maker of the late 1800's.
