P Bailly cello or not

Not original ... ironic that the seller should wish people to "stay safe" when he is encouraging them to do the very opposite.

Is it even French? I know nothing of celli, just curious.  Mirecourt at least?  The label is obviously a photocopy, I can tell that much :D

I think its something relatively new, Chinese or Romanian. The varnish reminds of of the Rudolf Doetsch line.

The real question is it worth $3K+? Most shops have exactly this type of thing for that price.

Yes, in my view this instrument is new - possibly a reject from a workshop, unless someone has deliberately put a crack in one of the corners in order to enhance its credibility.

The varnish is very strange, someone's idea of antique-ing perhaps.
