English cello c. 1760
Workshop of Joseph Hill
A rare and excellent example of a largely un-modified late-Baroque cello, characteristic of the London made instruments of the time, showing the hand of Joseph Hill.
The bass-bar (integral with the table), the neck, fingerboard and end-button are original.
The slender ebony tail-piece and the substantial boxwood pegs are English of the period.
It is fitted-up in the baroque style.
Gut strings by Toro and La Folia.
