Demi-jour

Is this cello really Amedee Dieudonne?

Recommended Posts

Can someone please help me identify this cello.

I've found it on eBay and one of the images shows tag that says "fait à Mirecourt par le Maitre Luthier Amedée Dieudonné en 1936" and I don't know if it's legit or not.

Back plate seems like it's from one piece of wood which I find odd.

Any information is appreciated.

The label looks like a xerox copy, I owned a 1958 Dieudonne cello And the label was light brown. The cello itself looks very similar to what I remember of my own instrument, but that label really looks wrong.

Modern cello - presumably from Reghin ...

It seems it had a previous label that has been scraped away - isn't there a bit of scraping still stuck to the inside?

It's seemed too good to be true.
Thank you for this information.

Now that you've mentioned it I see it too.

Near a heating radiator is perhaps not the best place to keep a fiddle.

I always cringe when I see people taking pictures of instruments near a radiator.

I'm not an expert, far from it, but while researching I've also found that original tags seem to be more of a yellowish tint and with a crisper font. That was why I posted it here. Thank you!
