    I bought from him wood for my first cello as he was about 50 km from where I lived then, he have large hall full of wood, he was very nice, made me cup of tea and we talked a bit.When I was leaving, he drove me to bus stop because I haven't had car.

    Johann Christian Voigt II ?

    because of pointed purfling and also place and period where it could be from looked correct to me. What could you say about its origin or age?

    Looking for info on Czech Maker

    From book Cesti houslari (Czech violinmakers) by Karel Jalovec (translated by me with my english:)) 'Polak Josef, Velky Osek, Kutna Hora, Kolin, 1920-1935. Self-taught that worked after Stradivari; inserted to violins special bassbar of his own construction.'
