Cost of Violin in 1800s English Currency

What would be considered a handsome price to offer for a common, good-quality violin of the sort that a street musician might own? I'm looking for a "come on! You could buy two violins with that much money!" amount. Era is the turn of the 19th century; place is London-ish.
