Hi,
I was referred here from the Internet Cello Society forums as the place to get opinions on a cello I am considering purchasing. 

The man that restored this Cello believes it to be French, late 19th century. I was able to play on it a couple weeks ago, and it had amazing projection, with a booming C. On old strings! There is a penciled marking inside “Repaired by John Carlson 1897”. Anyone heard of him?
