3/4 - rare antique 3/4 Cello, 19th century

This antique 3/4 cello was made late in Germany late in the 19th century, following the Mittenwald tradition. The beauty of the selected tonewoods is impressively decorated by the varnish with antique touches, of yellow-brown color, that was applied over a golden-yellow ground. The table of the antique 3/4 cello was crafted of wide grained spruce, and both the two-piece maple back and the ribs feature mild flames that are remarkably aesthetic. With only very few traces of use this instrument is preserved in best condition, with a minor repair to the back that was executed professionally and has no impact on the antique 3/4 cello´s sound. Our experienced luthiers looked this antique 3/4 cello over carefully and made it ready to play, with a convincingly strong and responsive sound that features some velvety note.
