Help identify Cello

Recommended Posts

Hi Michael,

Thank you! I haven't actually seen the instrument. My daughter has is from cleaning out her fathers house.

Can you tell the manufacturer from the insignia?

Many thanks!

Giving a second look and going only by what I see, I'm going to guess that this is an amateur-made American instrument, and it might be a viol, smaller than a cello. The wood looks American, the work and varnish amateur, and the size of purfling and wood grain might be a clue that it's a smaller instrument. The crest, in that context, is just someone's bad idea.

Please share pictures of the entire instrument? It does look like a Bass, or a Viol( the bass is a member of the Viol family) but to my eyes except for the varnish it looks like clean work
