This cello is an English Baroque cello reconverted in 1993 back to Baroque specifications by Francois Bignon in Birmingham. This was done for me to perform with my Baroque ensemble and it has given me years of pleasure.

The measurements of the back are - Length 79cm, lower width 45 cm, upper width 35 cm.

The instrument comes with a hard case and a bow (not baroque)
Certification: Attached are photos and the letter from Francois Bignon with the first scheme for the reconversion.
