Back length is 770mm. Many dealers or players would not buy it because they would feel its too long for comfort.

Just a thought ... in October Brompton’s auctions Gaetano Antoniazzi cello and that was 770mm and it fetched over $100K. So I guess if the maker is famous and/or desirable enough people will still buy it. Plus, if you’re a big dude/gal then probably a cello like this is actually the right fit!

An authentic Gaetano Antoniazzi cello is in a different league altogether than a Siego labelled cello that the auctioneers have listed as ' attributed' which means they don't believe it was made by Siega. What or how old is this cello would invite various opinions.In such a situation the cello will be valued on its individual characteristics. 770mm is considered long in the trade just like violins that have a length of back of 360mm is considered long and has little demand. You can always bid on it and buy it but if you want to turn around and sell it later its just a spuriously labelled unknown origin cello with a back length that is not preferred.
