With a heavy heart I am finally giving my beloved cello for sale.
It is an exceptionally beautiful Instrument and a wonderful example of the viennese master craftsmanship of the 18th/19th century.
It is labelled "Franciscus Geissenhof fecit. Vienna Anno 1791", however I have just recently shown it to specialist Benjamin Schröder in Frankfurt am Main, Germany who believes it not to be an original Geissenhof cello but to be built in Vienna in a similar period and style, possibly by one of his students. The one piece back is an absolute eye-catcher!

On request, I can send more detailed pictures of the Instrument.

Here is a video of one of my colleagues playing it in the Barbican Hall.
