Identification of the Maker's label

Hello, everyone!

 

It was suggested to me to try this forum for an inquiry about my new cello. I just bought a lovely instrument of unknown origin. My best guess is late 19th/early 20th century German manufacture, but I'm just a player. The label on the inside is largely removed apart from this tiny piece, and I was wondering if anyone had any thoughts on what it could be?

 

Many thanks for your time!

Oh, thank you so much! Yes, the label is pretty crooked inside. I bought the cello from someone who got it as a child from his father and doesn't recall anything about the origin. It's brobably nothing special, but it was definitely an affordable improvement over what I had. The cello is very healthy for its age, and is very resonant even though it's been silent for over 20 years. Here are some photos:

Hi again! I think my messages aren't going through immediately because I'm a new member. Does anyone have any thoughts about the background of the cello? I can do better photos if needed. Thanks again!

 

 

“one of these” will be about as acurate as you can get
