CS10/ 16 Antique, English, circa 1800, 7/8 size cello.
CS10/ 16 Antique, English, circa 1800, 7/8 size cello. Labelled’ Joseph Guarneri’.
The back is of 3 pieces of maple and is 73.9 cm in length. The scroll is stylistically of an earlier period but may not be original to the cello grafted to modern length neck . The front is of spruce with medium grain which narrows towards the flanks and is winged on the lower bouts. The label ‘Joseph Guarneri’ is believed to be misleading.
The cello has had extensive restoration but is now in good playing order.
