  1. Thanks so much for your assistance. I'll pass it on to a luthier to consider what has to be done. I don't think it's been played in a very long time and also came with a bow which seems to be in reasonable condition. I saw the cello for sale at an auction in Scotland and left a bid, based purely on looks. (I don't play - it's for my son.) As soon as I realised it was mine, I started to have buyer's remorse, wondering if it would be possible to make it playable for a reasonable price. Time will tell, but it's lovely to know a little more about it, and where it was made. Wouldn't it be wonderful if we could know the history of how it made its way from Germany to the Scottish countryside! If instruments could talk. I don't think fingerboard is angled overmuch - maybe the photos - but thanks for pointing that out. Something else to have the luthier consider.
  2. Hi all, I have acquired an old cello - lured by a rather beautiful back, but with a number of old cracks on the front which are closed. I’m wondering if anyone can help me identify where and when it might have been made. I’m also wondering if it’s necessary to have old cracks stabilised ? Thanks, bel
