German, late 1800's

I’m not sure we’ve ever had a cello this old at this low of a price. This instrument is from Northern Germany, likely made in a small, basic shop by as many as 2, but possibly only 1 person. The workmanship, while not award-winning, is structurally & tonally sound. The model is a nice one, the wood selection is good, and it plays with a lovely rich, old sound - the kind that is only present with a 120+ yr old cello. It is very responsive and easily fingered, and has surprising power.
