No such thing as village idiot.
Im not going to speculate on the origins of those two cellos from ebay, it’s not really my cup of tea. (I would be surpriced thou if they are anything remotely related to what they claim to be, both age and origin-wise.)
Regarding my comments about Reghin, you obviously have a vast span of quality. Many skilled luthiers there! I was offered a set of three lower end, but decent looking cellos prior to setup for 1000€. Not each, for all three. Made by some random luthier. Add 100€ for a specialized scroll by one of those really skilled guys that only make scrolls, then slap in whatever label you have, et voila!
